4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

Mindil beach is closed during the wet season.. was there last year and was looking forward to visit again but its closed for the wet season. I have to say that, this is a must visit.. it's like a local night market and really interesting to look at things.

“Mindi beach sunset markets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Wow, what an experience. Beautiful weather, wonderful food experiences (not much for coeliacs though) but wished we could have tried all the superb weird and wonderful food on offer.
The craft was different than your usual markets with a focus on indigenous craft, and the atmosphere so very friendly.
To top it off the sunsets were awesome, unbelievable, out of this world.

“Market could have been better...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

The view at sunset is amazing, but for a market I would have expected a fair bit more local hand made goods.

The one stand out was the performance by EmCee a didgeridoo artist who plays 5 didgeridoo's at once and with a really funky sound, I bought a CD and would go again just to hear him!

“Crowded and crappy”
2 of 5 bubbles 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 !!
