FNQ Community Exchange is all about trading; buying and selling goods and services for Bartles rather than spending the Aussie Dollar. Trade events are held in many locations across the north. There is probably one near you this week!
What to bring to Trade events:
- Meal to share if applicable
- Trading Record Sheet and pen
- Any goods you wish to trade
- Promotional material of any services you are offering if applicable
- $20 fee if you don’t yet have a FNQ Community Exchange account
