​Mindil Beach Sunset Markets - back tonight!

Posted on 28 June, 2020 in Darwin


Mindil Beach Sunset Markets

This is Darwin's biggest and most famous market and is not to be missed! Overlooking Mindil Beach, this iconic market has lots of local stalls to explore, food to eat and usually a spectacular sunset to witness. We'd recommend getting here before sunset as it does get busy. Pack a picnic blanket and grab yourself some delicious food from the vendors lining the beach. After dark is the best time to wander around the stalls, with the cool sea breeze and stars overhead. These markets are BYO.

This year the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets will only run each Sunday 4-9pm. You'll have to wait until 2021 for the Thursday edition of the markets to return. This year the opening night at Mindil Beach Sunset Markets will be a little more low key than usual but it will still be lots of fun! Below are some tips from the Mindil crew...

  • A few things to remember before the shenanigans kick off! 🎉
  • 🎆 NO FIREWORKS - Unfortunately we will not be featuring our Fireworks Display. This is due to the uncertainty of the start date and the significant financial cost. ❌
  • 💵 BRING CASH - Call us old fashioned but cash is still king at the Market, so to avoid long waits in the ATM lines grab some $ before arriving!💰
  • ♻️ NO BYO CONTAINERS - Unfortunately for the moment we cannot allow people to utilise their reusable food and drink containers to package your food. So make sure to do your part for the environment with all your rubbish ending up in the bin! ♻️
  • 🥂 DRINK RESPONSIBLY - Mindil Market is a completely licensed, BYO venue. If you plan on indulging in a few beverages, think ahead and organise a friend, family or taxi to give you a lift! 🍻
  • 🐶 NO DOGS - Unfortunately our 4-legged best friend isn't invited to this party. It's a requirement of our Permit issued by City Council. 🚫

Opening night is always a great night out on the Darwin calendar so we hope to see you down here!!
