A message from the Mayor of Boroondara


Camberwell Sunday Market celebrates 40 years

On Sunday, 28 August, Camberwell Sunday Market celebrates a wonderful 40 years as one of Melbourne’s most iconic markets, deeply embedded into Camberwell’s social fabric. As a community we are proud to call it ours.

As the 250 thousand annual visitors who support the Market drop their gold coins into Rotary volunteers’ yellow cups each Sunday, little may they realise the many charitable causes they’ve assisted.

For the past 20 years a unique relationship has existed between Balwyn Rotary, Council and the Camberwell Traders. During that time approximately $3.3 million or around 30 per cent of the net proceeds raised at the Market, along with additional funds from Council, has supported the Boroondara Community Strengthening Grants.

These grants have enabled many Community Groups to implement projects, run events and provide a range of services to meet outcomes valued by the community.

Likewise, Balwyn Rotary have contributed to many Council projects including the Boroondara Literary Awards, Kinder Plus, Boroondara Cares Foundation and infrastructure projects which have benefited the community and Camberwell Traders.

I congratulate Balwyn Rotary on this fantastic milestone and thank all Rotarians and members of our community who have contributed to the success of the Market over the past 40 years.

This birthday celebration will be a wonderful community event. All are welcome to attend and I hope to see you there on Sunday 28 August.
With best wishes,

Councillor Jim Parke, Mayor of Boroondara

Car parking at Camberwell

Camberwell Town HallPublic Car park building works near Target.

Free all day car parking is available for those visiting the Market on Inglesby Road opposite the Local council offices. Only a 5 minute walk back to the Market.

The Market area and stall numbers will be unaffected by the building works and access to the Market via Station Street will be unaffected.

The building works have started and will take place over the next 9 months as a result in public parking in the south end of the Target car park has been reduced by over 250 car spaces.
