About NQB&KM

The North Qld Babies & Kids Market was developed due to an overwhelming response to one mum organising a small market to sell pre-loved babies and kids goods. The market has grown from 8 stall holders to over 90 displays of pre-loved, handmade, new or promotional stands. The Market is not only for parents to buy and sell good quality pre-loved babies and kids goods but also provides an avenue to connect mums with mums; and local home based businesses and services.


The Mackay Babies & Kids Market is held approximately every three months on a Sunday at the Showground Milton St, We are inside the hall with Big Ass Fans (that is what they are called) also with the huge roll a doors open.
This market is not a all handmade market, it’s a market for all things babies and kids plus so much more. 


The Townsville Babies & Kids Expo is held 2 times a year on a Saturday. In 2022 it see’s or Expo move from Ryan Catholic College to our new Venue Townsville RSL Stadium at Murray Sports Complex, this new venue is all indoors and is Air conditioned venue. While we have loved our time at Ryan Catholic College we are excited for the change to air condition venue for the comfort of our shoppers but we have also teamed up with Townsville City Council to hold our March and November events in conjunction with the TCC Welcoming Baby Ceremony for 2022. This brings a welcoming change to both events with more available and on offer across the day.
