For six months of the year Mindil beach, Darwin becomes a hive of activity twice a week. Mindil Beach Sunset Market is held on the foreshore before dusk every Thursday and Sunday night from the end of April to the end of October.
Immerse yourself in the buzzing atmosphere of Mindil Beach Sunset Market with over 200 stalls, live entertainment and children's activities. Mindil's market contributes to the local Northern Territory economy providing employment to over 1000 locals. Here you can buy anything imaginable from souvenirs, clothing, Asian food and even a digeridoo.
Inspired by Asia's night markets Mindil Market was established in 1987. It offers open air picnic areas, seating, information booth, onsite ATM and even corporate function area with ocean views. This events area is set back from the bustling market to ensure privacy yet it is still close enough that groups can still enjoy the ambience of the market.To see what's on at Mindil Market click here.
Stroll the aisles, spoil yourself with some new jewellery, summer clothing or even a crocodile tooth necklace for a souvenir of yoru trip to the top end. Then sit back with an Asian meal enjoying free live entertainment including street performers and fire shows all whilst witnessing the spectacular iconic sunset from the foreshore.
