More than 130 stalls selling everything from fishing hooks to power cruisers and camping equipment will pack out Victoria Point State School from 6am to 12pm.

Victoria Point Volunteer Marine Rescue secretary Neville Brown said money raised during the markets would help the association cover the costs of vessel maintenance, fuel and volunteer training.

He said 10 per cent of gate takings and stall holders fees would be donated to Victoria Point State School's parents and citizens committee, who will also run a barbecue and canteen during the markets.

"People come in and sell new or second hand fishing rods and equipment," Mr Brown said.

"There's a whole gamut of items and bargains on sale including boats and life jackets.

"You see people with big smiles walking out the gates at the end of the day."

Mr Brown said the markets would interest anyone with a passion for boating, camping and fishing.

There will also be raffles with prizes ranging from meat trays to fishing tackle sets.

Entry to the markets is by gold coin donation.

Boaties can secure a stall spot for $10, with no restrictions on size and no need to book ahead.
