The Bedouin shuk in Be’er-Sheva was founded in 1905 as a place for the exchange of
goods. Today, the colorful market offers its visitors a wealth of authentic and Oriental
memorabilia in the way of clothes, ornaments and crafts, housewares, rugs, spices and
more. Open every Thursday from the early morning hours.

the support of the Pratt Foundation, and commemorates the soldiers of the ANZAC

during WWI. The dramatic statue of an Australian soldier on his horse situated in the park,
and brought over from Australia, represents the valiant ANZAC soldier. Suitable for every
population, the park is appropriate also for special-needs children and holds fun activities
and events year-round for the entire family.
