I got hopelessly lost trying to Find the Marketplace at Beenleigh. I came off the motorway and drove up and down the main street not knowing where I was going or what I was looking for. Finally a Caltex Service station, my third try at asking directions, actually told me the Marketplace was not at the showgrounds, but 2 roundabouts up and 800 m past that. I finally found the Beenleigh Marketplace, but had I a Sat Navigator, I would have found it far sooner.
