Famous for its monthly Craft Market held at the showground (follow the cars or look out for the camels…), The Channon is a delightful village with an artistic bent. The Craft Markets (on the second Sunday) feature an amazing array of home-made or handcrafted goods including clothing, jewelry, shoes, incense, candles, pottery, glassware, foodstuffs and there are lots of food, juice and coffee stalls for hungry visitors. Tarot readings, massage therapy, crystal-healing and camel rides are just a few additional possibilities and buskers add to the entertainment.
The Channon village has tea rooms, craft shops, galleries and an historic tavern and is also the starting point for a rainforest walk in the spectacular Protestor Falls on Terania Creek Road. Please note that swimming in the icy waterhole is no longer permitted as the water, which provides for the habitat of many frogs, fish and reptiles, is easily polluted by sunscreens and insect repellents.
