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

Its a must see sunset that is an incredible experience not to be missed. The markets are an experience of so many cultures and diverse products although please expect very big crowds at sunset markets

Lots of different "street food" a bit disappointing in quality. We tried some of it. Looked much better than it tasted. Some interesting wares to buy, many locally made. Went about 5 years ago. I think it need to lift its game for us to go back.

We sat at Mindil Beach for Territory Day fire works. Great time. Had dinner at the market ,enjoyed the sun set & stayed for the fireworks. Spray your legs for insects its a bit bitty.

Loved it, but can be quite crowded. The stalls all had unique goods for sale, and the food stalls were endless and varied, wished I had spent more time there!
