Things to see and do in Rocklea
Rocklea is nestled 12km south of Brisbane CBD and earned its name thanks to the rocky waterholes that scatter the area, including Oxley Creek known for its varying bird species (180 in fact), Stable Swamp Creek and Rocky Waterholes Creek.
Other than natural sites, the industrial hub has also built a reputation for hosting some of Brisbane's most iconic markets.
If you love fresh fruit and veg, then you'll love the Saturday Fresh Markets, the largest fresh food market in the area of Brisbane, with over 220 stalls to visit. There's also live entertainment and international grub for when you're done shopping. 7,000 shoppers visit every Saturday, so you better get in quick!
On the other hand, if hand-made trinkets and antique items are more your thing, then the Sunday Discovery Market may be just up your purchasing alley. It also gets an impressive turnout with over 5,000 shoppers each Sunday and 380 stalls to visit.
And horticulturalists will absolutely love the Brisbane Flower Market where you can pick up some beautiful blooms at wholesale prices, open 6 days a week Monday-Saturday.
