What people say

"Operating between the last Thursday in April and the last Thursday in October. Open on Thursdays and Sundays from 4pm to 9pm. One of the most scenic markets in Australia for sure! Wander the markets as you watch the sun set off Mindil Beach! Also, one of the best markets in Australia for Indigenous art. A must-see if you're visiting Darwin. If the Top End heat is getting to you, hunt around for a papaya salad - they are super refreshing! Or if you like it hot - spice up your life with a laksa from Darwin Laksa in the Territory Space on Food Alley. The market is around a 3km walk from the city, there's free parking, or hop on public bus 4 or bus 6. Special buses operate from the Darwin Interchange (15) and Casuarina (route 19) on Thursday market days only. With over 150 food, beverage, arts and craft stalls, and live entertainment, there's something for everyone!"
"This place truly captures the city's multicultural spirit. The market comes alive as the sun sets over the ocean, and a unique tradition here is the whole crowd clapping to the spectacular sunset. You’ll find an diverse mix of stalls, offering everything from local crafts to international delicacies. Brace yourself for the crowds, especially during the dry season when it's bustling with locals and tourists alike.  "
"Open from 4-9pm on Thursday and Sunday, Mindil Sunset Market is the largest market in the region. Enjoy the sun setting over the water as you browse the stalls and enjoy the different food dishes on offer. Listen to local musicians and watch street performers and buskers in this vibrant market."
