the market is typically held on the 3rd Saturday of every month from october to april amongst the beautiful stringybark gums of the historic Emu Plains Reserve in Balnarring.

excellent onsite parking is available for $4. The money raised helps the community projects of the westernport rotary group and the emu plains reserve committee for the upkeep of the gorgeous market grounds. 

We also have an ATM on site for your convenience.

Sorry, NO DOGS allowed on the reserve land.

We look forward to welcoming you soon! xo
our history
A reserve since 1860, Emu Plains has high regional significance for biodiversity, with the heathlands being especially valuable. The open central heathland area is rich in flora species. With the extensive low heathland backed by stringybark forest, the landscape most resembles what the Bun wurrung and early European surveyors and settlers knew to be the Balnarring area: open plains set in forest.
Nowhere else on the Mornington Peninsula can this visual experience now be found, as almost all of the plains are gone. It is said that emus once ran on the Balnarring plains.
We share our home with the Balnarring Picnic Racing Club.
