Carrara Accommodation

Carrara is a colourful, event laden suburb famous for the Gold Coast’s largest and most popular markets, three large golf courses, a host of Carrara accommodation, and the Metricon Stadium – home of the Gold Coast Football Club or ‘the Suns’ as they are affectionately referred to.
The Carrara markets have become more popular than the suburb itself boasting a massive 500 stalls offering everything one could desire from fresh produce and meat to homewares and clothes to jewellery and shoes. The popular Family Fun Lane has balloon crafting clowns, face painting, pony rides, a merry-go-round, three interactive shows a day by Luke’s Reptile Kingdom, and even two King Tutt’s mini golf courses. In true Gold Coast style both entry and parking to the Carrara markets are free. A day at the markets is a day of action packed, affordable family fun. 
Known as “Long Flat” to the local aboriginals, Carrara’s natural landscape and beautiful weather make it the perfect setting for golf, which has been taken advantage of by three separate golf courses including Palm Meadows, Emerald Lakes and Carrara Gardens Golf Course giving guests a variety of options. 
Book your Carrara accommodation close to the Metricon Stadium to catch a Suns game or two. The stadium often hosts other big sporting events either in the stadium or in its well-appointed indoor sports centre situated next door.

Carrara Weather

Carrara is famous for the eclectic markets, Metricon Sports Stadium, and three golf courses, however, it is the lovely Carrara weather that makes these Gold Coast icons truly shine.

Summer from December to February is a beautiful time to visit Carrara as it is mid-summer and the humidity is high but combatted nicely by frequent cool sea breezes.

Autumn from March to May boasts sunny days and warm nights perfect for fishing and sailing, while winter is still sunny but dryer as there is less rain. Spring is a beautiful time of year similar to Autumn that can be relied upon for sunny days and mild tropical evenings.
