Night Noodle Markets Canberra

The Canberra Times Night Noodle Markets kicks off from the 25th Feb – 6th March with our three Hong Kong inspired desserts. Register for your free ticket HERE.

The Canberra Times Night Noodle Markets is back baby! After a long hiatus, one of Australia's best outdoor foodie events is back on track to bring drool-worthy Asian street food and drinks to the masses. The tour kicks off in Canberra at a new location — Parkes Place West Lawns before making its way around Australia throughout the year.

The bustling market is bringing back all your faves — Korean BBQ King, KorBQ, Donburi Station, Wonderbao, Hoy Pinoy, Teppanyaki Noodles, Flying Noodles, Twistto and May’s Malaysian Hawker. And the best news? You can bring your furry friends along.

This year you'll also be able to order ahead on your phone via Mr Yum for our menu and participating vendors, meaning less queuing and more fun. All you have to do is scan a QR code to view, order and pay for your food. You'll be sent an sms when your items are ready to be collected from each stall — simple.

How will you spot our stand!? We were inspired by the vibrant streets of Hong Kong... bringing to life the bright green Jade Dragon Cafe — you can't miss us.

We've created three killer desserts including a milo reincarnation of our 2015 NNM deep fried gelato ball, all of which are exclusive to The Canberra Times Night Noodle Markets.
