“Crowded and crappy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Its turned into a tourist trap with poor quality, overpriced food compared to what you get elsewhere in Darwin. The parking and crowds are a nightmare. Get jostled and bumped when trying to get something to eat. But if you like congestion........go for it !!

“sunset”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

The beach and sunsets are second to none, the markets are massive though do we tend to avoid them. If you like markets well these have a sensation choice of food.

“The Best Market to date”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

What can I say. Mindil Beach markets. Absolutely awesome. Definitely do not eat anywhere else before attending. The food stalls were awesome with so many choices and tasty treats. The things to buy are great and well priced. Music, fun, the sunset on the beach. I can't wait to visit again. An abosulute must see.
