Plenty of food based options at this market and whilst we only tried a couple they hit the mark. Picked up a few gifts for those back home and then made our way to the beach to watch one of the famous Darwin sunsets.

The location and content of the market was good, lots of different food options and also craft stalls and performers. The only down side was that the food was quite expensive for market/street food however the experience of taking it to the beach to watch...More

It was lovely walking around this huge market. Lots of stalls, lots of different food on offer, people performers doing their thing for the crowds and the beautiful sunset. Enjoyable afternoon / evening.

This is a superb market, with food stalls serving freshly cooked food from all over the world, with Aboriginal buskers and other great music. Parking was easy. The highlight was the am azing sunset on the beach. Definitely a Darwin must-do in the Dry Season.

Any type of food you want! Heaps of cultures, heaps of people. Dry season only in Darwin. Eat shop and head over to the beach for the most beautiful sunsets.

We went down for the sunset which was amazing. The market has a nice atmosphere and there are some good food stores there. The goods for sale are typical market stuff. The highlight for me was the sunset.

Open during this period over the dry season Thursday & Sunday nights 4pm - 10pm well worth the visit. If driving you’ll need to get their early for a park, hope this helps regards Wayne.
