Worth a visit - particularly to try a selection of food and listen to live music. Had expected something bigger - there were about 60 stalls

Must place to go during the day! great beaches and very good food outlets. There is also a casino for those looking for luck! There are markets to visit and the most exciting ones are Sunday and Thursdays - the sunset times. Get there before the sun sets to enjoy extraordinary scenaries. Then get yourself some food from any of... More

Lots of stalls and eats of various cuisines.Well patrolled by both security staff and some police presence too to decrease any poor behaviour. We went there after our evening cruise had finished so we only spent about an hour and a half there. was enough time though as we had a mission- to get some souvenir t- shirts for grandchildren...

Love these markets; the atmosphere, stores and food galore. Great sunsets. A relaxing way to spend Sunday dinner with a beverage and friends.

The sunsets are amazing which is the perfect time to be sitting on the beach watching them while eating some of the diverse foods on offer at the market. Parking is a nightmare and on occasion you will get boxed in and can't leave because people park in front and behind your car.

Everybody goes to watch the sunset and therefore it's not only the beautiful sunset that you admire, but also the diversity of people, all together admiring the beauty of nature. Peace, relaxation and a time to ponder...

The sunsets here are best magnified by a great ambience of humanities beautiful people. But you have to be early to get a parking space. Better yet park some where else close by like the Darwin Sailing Club and have a leisurely walk. The food is good and make sure you sample everything. Asian food is best if you are... More

It's famous for the market. The beach is nothing so special considering what else Australia has to offer. Sand is quite dark and seems dirty, not like very clean beaches. You can't swim anyway because of crocs and jellyfish so what to enjoy: have a meal and sit down on the beach to watch the sunset (which is really clear... More

Fantastic and extensive range of food stalls. Beautiful views of sunset over the beach. The non food stalls were the usual array of kakaluck you find at most markets but some unique to Darwin.
