Mindil Beach Sunset Markets

Mindil Beach Markets, Tourism NT

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.
