Plenty of food options at all the different stalls that will suit the fussiest of eaters. Great stalls with friendly staff all the way along. All this with the beach backdrop and a beautiful sunset. No wonder the place has such a good vibe.

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.

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.
