We visited these markets on the Sunday when they open at 4:30 PM. They also open on a Thursday. It's great to watch the sunset at the adjoining beach and then go to the market where they have some aboriginal art, lots of good Asian, Indian and some other international foods. Also available are ice creams, lollies, drinks and coffee. There are many other assorted stalls.

There is an indigenous atmosphere with aboriginal women singing along with sticks as well as live music with a guitar and didgeridoos.
The markets are kept clean with frequent rubbish bins which are regularly emptied.

There is ample parking.

We stayed at a hotel on the Esplanade in Darwin and it was approximately a 25 minute walk to the markets. Taxis are available if you don't want to walk.

Just fabulous with the sun setting on the beach, live music, food galore, and craft booths. We enjoyed walking through the market, hard to choose what to even get to eat. We had Yiros and they were delicious. We had mango ice cream after.
We walked from hotel on Mitchell Street. A 30 min easy walk. And then took cab back for $16.
There are bathrooms, toilet paper was gone by end of market so throw some tissues in your purse ladies!

We went down to the market about 8 o’clock Thursday night, found out it closes at 9!
We loved the food range but was a bit disappointed with the lack of other stalls.
Apparently the craft market is On Sunday, unfortunately we weren’t in Darwin long enough to check that out.
Going by the crowd the market is a real crowd puller as people go early and eat on the beach.

Firstly if you hate crowds this is not the place for you but if you can make sure you include a Thursday night in your itinerary during the dry season. These are sunset markets that run roughly from May to October. So bring a BYO bottle of bubbles or beer, a picnic blanket or chairs and chill out. There is a huge range of food stalls that range from oysters to smoked crocodile. There is also a range of other stalls that sell leather goods, massages, clothes etc.
