Very nice, got there early before 4pm so parking wasn't a problem, had some fresh cooked prawns $12.50 came with seafood sauce and a little lettuce I think there were about 8? they also sell oysters that seemed to be very popular. Had a look around not as many stalls as I had thought but lots of food to choose... More

Easy to find in the parklands on the beachfront. Fantastic choices for food. Lots of nationalities are available. Excellent gifts to buy, whips, crocodile bags and souvenirs, hanging things, top end tshirts, stubby holders, tarot card readings, card, photos, such a wonderful variety.

Jam packed full of visitors, so expect a crowd. The market stalls themselves were nice to look at, but what little that did interest me was expensive. I think I've been spoilt by the great markets that Craft Markets Australia put on in Victoria. Still it was nice to browse. The best party by far was the brilliant variety of... More

We visit the Mindil Beach markets every year when we travel up to Darwin. We love the show put on by the buskers, the food stalls and watching the beautiful sunsets. In fact, we attend the markets every Thursday and Sunday while we are in town... BUT.....the other stalls are still the same, with the same old stuff they love... More

If you can - start your visit to the market with a sunset drink on the beach - very liberating, a wonderful experience (easily done with a small esky). Choice of food was excellent and really good value. We arrived at 5pm and had little trouble getting a car park - although already busy.

Had a great time at the markets, sat on the edge of the beach and watched a spectacular sunset whilst eating great food. Markets are diverse and great items to enjoy and buy; but a few people hanging around begging for money made for being a bit weary. Police are at site too, so felt quite safe. Parking can get...

There are some really delicious choices of food here. You can just stroll along and graze all night (which will get a bit expensive, but...). Try some of the fresh fruit smoothies or fruit salad, a selection of Indonesian nibbles, a spiral potato, corn on the cob, some curry or maybe a crocodile or kangaroo burger and finish with cakes,...

Ok, so it's just an outdoor market, but the atmosphere here was great! The variety of stalls was pretty impressive too. We went on two consecutive Sunday's and between us came away with locally made insect repellent (which worked!), a truck tarp hat (which proved essential when hiking in Katherine), two pairs of trousers (admittedly from Thailand) a high quality...

Good fun markets down at the beach, with a glorious sunset to boot. Along with the regular market dross there were some v interesting stalls, especially the Readback Art stall and a photographer's stall. As for food, we had a good simple pizza, with the making of it turned into a cabaret act, which made it all worthwhile. We also... More
