Great atmosphere, lovely location. Mornings are best to avoid the crush. Donation at gate supports local school. Hard to choose best food van, I love the samosas.

Take a delightful drive through the rolling hills near Byron Bay for some genuine local produce markets. No stalls filled with Cheap Asian products, but wood products and food styles galore. Make the drive and you will love the experience.

Haven't been to the Channon for about 20 years. Not quite the same full on 'hippy' market' it once was, but still a great market. Nothing stays the same forever I guess. Got some great things.

Went with my niece who loves this type of markets. It was interesting and crowded. It's a community market with over 200 stalls selling all kinds of crafts, foods and drinks and people singing and dancing. Face painting for the youngs and not so young!...More

This was our first trip to the Channon Markets and it was really good to see lots of genuine crafts rather than mass produced, inevitably made in china, rubbish that seems to be taking over so called markets these days. Lots of choice of food...More
