We are very excited here at Blue Wave Property Strategies, with the introduction of NightQuater the Award Winning Street food, night markets and entertainment about to arrive on the Sunshine  Coast.

NightQuarter is a unique blend of street food, community and culture. It’s an ever-evolving festival with a kaleidoscope of different experiences, flavours and sounds every weekend. With an ethos of shared eating, shared experience and shared conversation, the shipping container urban playground is set to open at Birtinya on the Sunshine Coast in late 2019 and become a place for the local community to congregate.

The history of NightQuarter, opened in Helensvale on Town Centre Drive in November 2015 and was heralded as “the answer to the northern Gold Coast’s resounding cry for a cultural revolution.” 

For just over three years, foodies and music lovers delighted in the Northern Gold Coast’s NightQuarter night markets. It quickly became one of the city’s most iconic food and music destinations.

Every weekend thousands of locals and tourists flocked to the precinct to experience the best in street food, authentic eats, market stalls and live entertainment.

Think Mediterranean back alleys meets street food culture, and you have NightQuarter. With a kaleidoscope of global flavours, upcycled shipping containers, string lights, street art, astro turf, stages and over 100 regional vendors within the creative playground. 

The venue closed on the 1st February 2019 after failing to reach an agreement with landlord Scentre over a 200% rent increase.  The final night at NightQuarter featured a sold out show with the UK’s UB40.

The award-winning ‘The Paddock’ live music venue programmed live original music every weekend. With major acts like UB40, Amy Shark, The Living End, The Screaming Jets, Fisher, Grinspoon, Spiderbait, Sticky Fingers, Simple Plan, The Cat Empire, Sunnyboys, RUFUS and more playing the venue, the venue quickly established itself as part of the national and international touring circuit. 

The venue also focused on programming original music from the Gold Coast and supporting up and coming local artists from high school performers to established local bands. 

Perfectly position in between Maroochydore and Caloundra at Birtinya, in Stocklands beautiful master plan estates. The new venue will be adjacent the Existing Stocklands Birtinya Shopping Centre and behind Spotlight.


Birtinya is home to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital and the Sunshine Coast University Private Hospital, it is a stone throw away from the beach, which also bosts Stockland’s newest land release Bokarina Beach that is the last remaining beach side land release. There are walking and cycle tracks to get you around with the new transport hub to be built in the future.

We are looking forward to seeing this new venture get off the ground on the Sunshine Coast and tasting all the new street food joints and wearing our shoes out dancing to the musicians and performers.
