The Todd Mall market opens with the town crier’s announcement, at which point Todd Mall market goers can browse the stalls, selling arts and crafts, souvenirs, jewellery, and local fresh produce and food. Live entertainment keeps the atmosphere lively, and there is free wi fi available. Indulge in a lazy Sunday brunch and wander down the pedestrian malls and its various plazas and arcades.

The official Alice Springs Town Council Christmas Carnival is a free family friendly community event. Expect a festive schedule packed with activities, market stalls and live entertainment – buskers and roving performances, as well as local Alice Springs musicians, on the main stage. Meanwhile, browse the Christmas Carnival market stalls for fresh food and produce, plants, clothes and jewellery, and even books. Kids can enjoy the Secret Solar Garden, and they have the opportunity to win a chance to be one of the chosen ones to switch on the Christmas lights.
