The markets are the major fundraising activity of the Canberra Lake Tuggeranong Lions Club. Entry is by gold coin donation, which is used to fund local, national and international projects and charities supported by the club.
There are numerous stalls selling a variety of goods including: arts and crafts, "pre loved" [i.e trash & treasure] non-elecrical goods, cakes, breads, lollies, plants and fruit and vegetables. There is something for everyone including display by the Canberra and District Historic Engine Club, plus Jumping Castle and other children's amusements, BBQ, food and drinks.
The location for the markets is the rustic surroundings of the Historic Tuggeranong Homestead site, backing onto the suburb of Richardson ACT.
