We were told of this beach by a lady working at Value Inn in Darwin. It is large and has lots of shaded areas to park the car. Also clean toilet blocks.

Make sure you make time to get down to the markets. Nothings else like it in Australia. It can be very crowded so if you hate that go down a bit later (after sunset) as everything gets less packed. If you are up for a full night bring your chairs and esky (yes you can bring wine or beer too)... More

Best place in Darwin to go on a Thursday night during the Dry season. Markets with everything you could imagine and food from all over the world. Sunset is stunning while you eat your amazing food.

We are here in the Wet Season, Sunsets are still beautiful. We've been before, enjoyed the Mindil Beach Market, fabulous range of stalls and eateries. Bring a chair, enjoy the beach and sunset...come early or by taxi...not a lot of parking.

The market was heaving with people all tasting food from around the Southern Hemisphere,Very buzzy and overall worth a visit.When the sun starts to set ,the entire market seems to end up on the beach to watch the NT experience ,hence close encounters.
