Very dissapointed that the landmark markets are closed when other markets in Darwin still operate year round. Sure if the forecast is rain but done throw the towel in so quickly.

So, I'm easily won over - I found a crepe stall and I was immediately happy! There are lots of food and juice bars to choose from, and plenty of stalls to wander. The beach gets very busy at sunset, but it's a great place to end the day. I'm not sure if they regularly have entertainment, but I was... More

After reading so much about these markets and the variety of fare on offer, we found ourselves a little disappointed and left after about 45 minutes. There was an abundance of food outlets with several ethnicities represented. The pricing was equivalent to what you would pay at any food court at the mall. The other offerings appeared to be geared... More

Mindil Beach is a great multicultural food experience with local entertainment and a wide range of market stalls. Well worth a visit - in fact we detoured 400km for a second visit! While you're there, make sure you sit on the beach (use plenty of good quality insect repellant to keep the midges away) and watch the sunset over the... More

Sunset was beautiful Food varieties were great Ambience was nice Musical performances were great The varieties of goods were awesome What's best was because it started in the afternoon so it was a lot cooler to walk around in Darwin heat. Would love to come back :-)

Near the entrance  to the market we were entertained by Emdee who played indigenous music with a twist. They were so good the we bought  a copy of their  latest album. The band really  provided a lively  atmosphere to the markets. There were a large number  of  food  outlets to suit all tastes. We had  buffalo burgers which were superb.... More

It’s the tradition of Italy, the flavours of Greece and the sweetness of a French delicacy. It’s the cultural art spanning across thousands of years of Indigenous history, hand-beaded jewellery of Vietnam and the music of a local band desperate to be discovered. It’s the freshly squeezed juice you’re delighting your tastebuds with as you witness the sky take the... More

After visiting the Nightcliff markets earlier in the day we headed off to Mindil. It was very much a mix of the same, but more food stalls.....ones we had seen earlier in the day! The food they were providing seemed to be the same food they were selling earlier in the day. A big turn off! It is definitely an... More
