It's a fun market - yes mainly filled with tourists but that's why we go... Lot's of uniquely Australian things, some great displays of wild animals (snakes, lizards) and beautiful colourful birds. The street food has quite a variety and is very nice

Missed it last year by a week because of the season, so made sure I visited this year. As amazing as everyone says. Grabbed a paella and sat on beach to watch the sunset. Great end to my Darwin Trip

Not too many stalls selling garbage imported products. Good selection of locally produced jewellery and crafts. Good massage services at reasonable prices. Good variety of food. A laksa on the beach to watch the sunset is lovely. Will go again :-)
