Mindil Beach Sunset Markets
The Mindil Beach Sunset Markets are Darwin’s most popular tourist attraction. Located off Gilruth Avenue, the markets operate on Thursday evenings (with a smaller version on Sunday evenings) from the end of April to the end of October, taking advantage of the superb dry-season weather. Up to 10 000 people enjoy the food of more than 30 nations and wander between stalls that offer everything from Aboriginal arts and Asian crafts to tarot-card readings, massages and kangaroo sausages. Live performances by theatrical and singing troupes are spiced with whip-cracking and poetry readings. Bands play at night and there is an occasional offshore fireworks display. At sunset, people often walk over the sand dunes to the beach to experience a quintessential Darwin moment.
Enjoy fantastic multicultural cuisine, live performances and eclectic shopping at Darwin’s favourite market.
