One of the best places I've seen to watch the sun go down, very clean and pretty beach. If you're visiting Darwin make sure to go to the markets here, you're bound to find something you like amongst the various foods, clothes, etc. Lovely place to visit!

Lots of stalls to eat at abd buy clothes, knick knacks, skin care products etc. Go mid afternoon to avoid crowds, go at sunset for great views.

We were in Darwin for a week on holiday and made sure we got to the Mindil Beach market twice. A huge selection of food and market stalls and the best place to see the sunset!

It is a great spot to view the sunset and the matte is just lovely. You can get there anything and it is pretty clean. So it is one of the places to be in Darwin!

It was terrible, market was great and all nice people. Only at the end there was a big fight between aborigonals. We understand that only Darwin in Australia cannot control the aboriginals in their town. Very sorry we will never visit Darwin.

The famous market has a wide selection of foods based on the various ethnic make up of the area, there can be a lot of people and there is a wide array of crafty things- I would say - if you've seen it once.....

Take a picnic rug and a cooler bag with drinks, choose something yummy to eat and watch the sun going down.

Fantastic market with high quality crafts and food trucks. Right on the beach so when you are buying your food and drinks, wander down onto the beach and watch the sunset. You won't be disappointed both adults and kids alike.
