A fantastic place to visit the Markets on a Thursday night or Sunday morning. Food from every corner of the globe. Watch amazing sun sets. Take an ale or bottle of wine and something to sit on on the beach

Mindil markets are classic Darwin, the weather, the food, the crafts. Sunset on the beach is great and to see the locals enjoying the unique Emdee live is too good

We were advised that every thursday and sunday there is a market at Mindil Beach. The market is made up of many Asian food stands and street artists shows. Very worthwile to visit for a good Asian meal at very reasonable prices. We realy enjoyed it.

Best markets in Darwin. Get in early to get a car park and to check out all the food stalls before selecting your dinner and sitting back to watch the live entertainment or watch the sun set sitting on the beach.

All I every heard previously about Darwin sunsets are true. The Mindil Beach is the best place to witness this beautiful sight. It has such a community spirit.

The market at Mindil Beach is open on Thursday and Sunday evenings - we went on Sunday, which we were led to believe is more a family oriented option. The food stalls almost outnumbered the goods stalls, which on the one hand, provided a wide array of eating options, but on the other hand, was a little disappointing - and... More

Beautiful place to simply stand on the beach and watch the sunset across the water. There is also a market located here in the car park area a couple times a week. The night market is best, loads of stalls and different foods, really good ....
