Incredible sunset!

Visited on a Sunday and was treated to an amazing sunset by the beach. It is a sight to behold as the sun dips slowly into the horizon, leaving an amazing orangey hue in the sky... read more

We have been visiting the markets since living in Darwin in the early 90s. There is now more commercial stalls that you can find anywhere than local arts and crafts, whichis a shame as there are so many great artisans in Darwin. The carparking is a nightmare - they put up diagrams on how to park, and then leave drivers... More

What a pleasant way to spend an evening. Food from all nations available with music and entertainment to set the ambiance of this fantastic event. My husband said the Chinese massage was firm but relieved his backaches which was the purpose of the activity. Fees are very reasonable. A great spot to pick up a few bargains to take home... More

Visited on a Sunday and was treated to an amazing sunset by the beach. It is a sight to behold as the sun dips slowly into the horizon, leaving an amazing orangey hue in the sky. I would say shopping fared much better than the food we ate and do note that the bus service going back to the city... More

Great spot for a little shopping some great stuff, some cheap tat and a great selection of food. Get there early for a shady parking spot.

I am a lover of markets and was told that this is the place to go when in Darwin. For me I didnt rank it up there with any of the best, but depends on what you want to see and buy. You have to go to make up your own mind. they have a good variety of food stalls,... More

Spent Sunday at the markets initially to get some food and wonder around, but I ended up spending a lot more time here as there were holiday stalls targetted at the travellers, bits and bobs stalls with clothes, jewellery and nic-nacks as well as some live music too! I did end up going into one of the stalls to get... More

we were lucky enough to witness a beautiful red "bushfire" sun sink into the ocean. Add to that the great variety of delicious foods and a huge array of market stalls and entertainers and it makes for a memorable night.

A great experience, lots all types of different foods and stalls. Mini bus from hotel for small fee or take the short walk from the city. Enjoy the sunset; a sight to see all those people waiting for the sun to set.

Love the amazing range of items to purchase as well as the food choices, then the chance to sit on the beach and watch the sun setting.

Always a treat to visit. Everyone can eat what they like best and the sunset is a must. Try Petra's raw cakes if she is there and it's your thing. They are delicious. There is a guy selling blue gum oils and products who was really interesting to talk to and I've often wanted to visit the tarot card reader!
