AKOONAH PARK BERWICK
2 Cardinia St, Berwick 3806
With pristine bushland, dog-friendly walking trails, and a serene creek, Akoonah Park is a public park in Berwick of Melbourne’s southeast suburbs. Located in the City of Casey, This Crown land recreational reserve is also used as a showground, with the famous Berwick Show taking place each February.
The 27-acre site was developed and is managed by a volunteer committee of management, who provide facilities for the Berwick Agricultural & Horticultural Society and recreational facilities for the local community. The site includes a caravan park, playground, dog walking areas, creek, and multiple venues available to be hired.
With a vibrant and communal atmosphere, Akoonah Park Market is a Sunday market that hosts over 350 indoor and outdoor stalls from 8:00am–1:30pm.
One of Melbourne’s best farmer’s markets, stall categories include food, fresh produce, flowers, plants, handcrafts, tools, work gear, eco-friendly products, artwork, pet supplies, bric-a-brac, pony rides, jumping castles, and a lot more.
Akoonah Park Market is a great place to meet with family and friends, enjoy some delicious food, and browse a huge range of great stalls. Dogs are welcome too – but you must bring your own waste bags, use a short leash, and keep them under effective control.
Known for its great food options, takeaway food stalls at the Market offer a range of cuisines including Chinese, Thai, Indian, Vietnamese, Sri Lankan, and Mexican.
The Market operates throughout the whole year and in all weather conditions, however, we close between Christmas and New Year and on the last Sunday of February due to the Berwick Show.
In 2018, we expanded our markets to include seasonal Friday night markets. These have a very different flavour to our Sunday market, with a strong emphasis on food, family entertainment, and handcraft stalls.
Proceeds from the Market are a major source of funding for improvements and maintenance of Akoonah Park.
