There's nothing to get too excited about here, but then Darwin isn't really known for shopping. Early in the morning and on Sunday afternoons it gets very quiet along the Mall - not much to see or do. Unless you really need a shopping fix...More

We came here on Boxing Day and it was like a ghost town. Cotton On is the only major shop here, the rest are boutiques, camping shops and souvenir shops. There are also plenty of ‘massage’ places that seem to be open 24 hours a...More

Located in the heart of tge city the Smith Street Mall just has not moved with the times. Many of the shops are vacant, tired and downright depressing. Don't expect much as this place has not changed much since I lived here in the 1980s....More

I was shocked that the main mall in Darwin was so underwhelming ! We walked through a couple of times and were never inspired by any of the shops. We went into a souvenir shop that was overpriced and full of unwanted souvenirs. It is...More

But on the upside, parking is much cheaper than any other state capital. The mall is very small and the most upmarket shop is Betts. You can find a good coffee at the Rabbit Hole and a few ok eats in between, for good food...More
