Mindil is the same year after year, with the occasional new stall popping up. Only time we go now is if we have visitors who have heard about it, and they are not overly impressed. Sunsets are glorious though!

The markets are the best markets in Australia in my opinion. If you go home hungry it's your own fault there is more food there than at the local shopping centre. The other stalls have everything from a hairclip to a crocodile back scratcher. The best place in Australia to see the sunset. Enjoy.

Great place to see the sunset and have a picnic on the beach, don't swim though as box jellyfish everywhere!

Mindil Beach Markets during the Dry Season is a great way of spending a Thursday or Sunday evening. Lots of great food to choose from. Great entertainment and not forgetting the spectactular sunset. Head off early (for parking reasons) take a blanket or chairs or just sit where you feel most comfortable and take in all the sites and cultures.... More

It is one of those 'must do' when visiting Darwin - very multi-cultural - food, entertainment, market stalls, handcrafted Territory souvenirs - watch the sunset on the beach

The advantage of these markets is that if you get tired of looking at stalls you can buy some food and go for a walk along the beach. Its a great spot to watch the sunset and its good free entertainment fo kids and family. So overall a good attraction while in Darwin
