Went to Mindle Beach with my girls and enjoyed a real magical sunset. The beach is enormous and wide.. which means lots of people without the feeling of being crowded. It was a great moment of just chilling out and enjoying the colors of nature.

Take your time and enjoy. We sat on the beach with freshly purchased oysters from the market and drank a beer while watching this beautiful sunset. Well worth the visit.

Good markets and a great place to eat, lots of variety there. But the stalls were all the same and not really very cheap as one expects at markets.

Best place to visit if you want to try dishes from different part of the world (mainly Asian) at a reasonable price. There are also stalls selling local art and crafts. Must visit place in Darwin during the season. get there early to avoid the crowd and parking
