Worth a visit but the volume of people made browsing difficult, Suggest you eat early because the crowd doubles in size and just moving through the various vendor areas is extremely hazardous. I was a little disappointed with the food. All very much the same and not very good Asian - quite a lot of fried food which was disappointing.... More

These markets have a good variety of food on offer, and a decent range of merchandise. Catch the sunset with the crowds on the beach!

A lot of food stalls & no where to sit & eat. Too many people for the area in the warm climate & can't really enjoy seeing what there is to buy.

The vibe on this place is great, and to see the sun setting on the sea added to the experience. There is music as well as kids entertainment...

Do not miss visiting the Mindil Market! Excellent variety of beautiful food. Wonderful entertainment as you wander around between the stalls of goods for sale, and the feature of the evening is sitting on the beach to view the spectacular sunset.

Beautiful clean beach, biggest market I've ever seen, absolutely great experience. There is such a variety of food and stall holders produce, nice to see all made in Australia.

Watching the sunset on Mindil Beach was beautiful but the Mindil Markets were disappointing as most stalls seemed to be about food. We would have liked to browse stalls of other interests and stock

The view is great but the food is over-rated. There are better places to watch the sunset without the enormous crowds. Darwin has much better places to go to have something to eat

Wow - the sunset was worth waiting for and having photographs taken. I've been to many markets but this one was different in that it had the most unusual and unexpected array of international cuisine on serve! Very fascinating stalls and I got my beautiful croc tooth pendant from there at a lower price than in the city. Wish I... More

The transport to the Thursday market was good and inexpensive. The market is lively, with entertainment and plenty of stalls offering a wide choice of well-priced food. After eating, watch the sun going down from the sandy beach and don't forget your camera.
