I have been living in Darwin for 2 yr now and I went on Mindil beach market few times. After reading the other review I feel compelled to express myself. Yes, the sunset is truly beautiful, but also from Cullen bay or East point is beautiful too. Ok let's make something clear for those who never been to mindil market:... More

Watch the sunset on Mindil then attend the local markets located just behind the beach. Lots to see and do. With numerous foods stall, local crafts, bands and other displays. Definitely worth a visit.

The hype is not wrong, the Mindil sunset is truly beautiful. There are lots of food stalls and lovely little shops. Good for a relaxing Sunday evening

Sunsets yes! Amazing variety of international cuisine but too much fried food. I think I had too much expectation and was disappointed in the quality of shopping and the food although i must say we did have a great laksa.

One of the highlights of our trip. Went there twice and the vibe, the cultural aboriginal up beat music, atmosphere blew my mind. The sunset is soooo pretty. The food options are limitless, the trucks just go on and on seems like over 100 options. Quite a few smoothie and juice trucks for us health conscious. I just love this... More

These markets are world renowned and for a great reason. Where else can you go and enjoy local cuisine, sea breeze, perfect weather and undoubtedly one of the best sunsets in the world? Held during the dry season months of the top end (may to oct) these markets are a must do while up in Darwin. Make sure you get... More

Having not been to a night market before it was a new experience. Looking around the food stalls to decide what we were going to eat took some time as everything looked so delicious. Joining the crowds to look around the other interesting stalls kept us occupied till it was time to get on the beach to watch the sun... More
