- Spent 3 hours working through the exhibits. Well presented and easy to walk around. Lovely variety of displays from Aboriginal art work; maritime boats; NT history and Cyclone Tracy. Well worth visit and cool out of 36C day outside. Nice coffee shop on site too.Written 10 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Mindil Beach and markets are listed as a must do when visiting Darwin. I visited on Sunday, one of 2 market days and so a lot of people in attendance. The beach is small and wide. The sunset was lovely but I had a better view from my accommodation balcony a few kms away. I noted a lot of people left the beach after sunset but you need to stay about 15 to 20 mins to get the beautiful changing colours of the western sky. As for the markets I've seen better. One long side of food vans of different cultures - pricey, tried little samples and then Asian for dinner. Not a lot of tables/chairs to sit and eat. Other side was similar expensive handicraft. Lovely live background music - country and didgeridoo. Had a great foot and shoulder massage which was worth price. If you need somewhere to look at sunset (and a Darwin sunset is wonderful) or really into markets then it's worth a visit.Written 28 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- It’s hard to capture the magic of this place in words. The reserve is a lovely place to have a picnic and the springs are just lovely.. I didn’t want to get out of the water it was just magical floating around in nature.Written 27 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Definitely a must-visit. Lots to do, great vibes. Family friendly. Safe environment with lifeguards present. Artificial beach was great too, many places to chill-out on the grass, either in the sun or under the trees, sun lounges provided too. Travelling solo I am always conscious of leaving things while I go swimming, but had no worries here. Walking distance from Darwin Central.Written 3 September 2023
- Visited on Sunday 30th April, it was very busy being the first Sunday market this year. Great choice of food and drink, not as many market stalls as I was expecting.Written 16 June 2023

- These markets were great - a much better proportion of food stalls to product stalls. Still a bit crowded but more manageable ( eg queues not as bad). Nice Vietnamese iced coffee, good food options. Would def go again. Mindil - I won’t.Written 16 July 2023

- This is a free attraction where you can pay a donation. You are greeted and given instructions to download the audio tour which brought the Gaol to life for a visitor. I think we spent about 1 - 1 1/2 hours there in the end listening to the audio tour, history and personal stories. Take your air phones!Written 20 June 2023
- This was something new for us and we thoroughly enjoyed our hour or more looking around at all the exhibits. Even saw the holes from the bombing of the WW2Written 24 July 2023
- This is in the old reserve Bank building in Bennett Street Darwin. It had a wealth of information-including maps, brochures, postcards and souvenirs. The man there was most helpful and gave me a map and timetable on how to get to the Quality Choice Hotel near the Darwin Airport It is a spacious building but tyhe only thing is no toilet, but there is one close by near the bus stationWritten 25 September 2023
