About the creator:

NightQuarter is the Gold Coast’s creative playground, featuring night markets, micro-restaurants, and a unique live music space called The Paddock. Discover over 120 speciality food purveyors, designers, musicians and craftspeople within a shipping container city.

Experience the intersection of food, community, and culture, with well-curated and diverse concepts from entrepreneurs, artisans and performers. Discover a moveable feast of mix-and-match eats from oysters to bao, gozleme and desserts in shipping container micro-restaurants. Queensland’s best purveyors have been hand-selected, with a curated mix of handmade crafts, desserts and vintage collectables. With six distinctive bars, fine cocktails, craft beers and local Queensland wine. Every weekend, find a line-up of the Gold Coast’s best emerging artists, travelling musicians and the country’s biggest touring acts.

The concept of NightQuarter was born from entrepreneurial duo Ian Van der Woude and Michelle Christoe who had a vision to turn an empty block into a buzzing night entertainment precinct, built around discovery and shared experience that also nurtured local Queensland makers, performers and artisans. Meet the people who make the things you love, reconnect with your neighbours, spend time with the people who make you happy. Make a night of it at NightQuarter.
