Darwin's Biggest & Best Market!

Mindil Beach Sunset Market is the heart of Darwin's cultural melting pot and truly epitomises the multicultural nature of our city! Darwin's largest market running along the foreshore of Mindil Beach, famous for its stunning sunset over the Timor Sea.

Mindil Beach Sunset Market began in 1987 when four people's dream of bringing a taste of Southeast Asia's night market to Australian shores came to life. From humble beginnings, today the Market sees the congregation of over 200 unique stalls, ranging from food stalls offering incredible local and international cuisine to an array of arts, crafts and services stalls.

Bursting with life from every corner, the Market features an array of amazing local and travelling live musicians, street performers, dance groups and buskers, from all walks of life and performing arts genres. The smells, sights and sounds are guaranteed to provide you with an unforgettable one-of-kind experience. This combination of amazing food, arts and culture, set to the backdrop of the spectacular sunset, creates an electric atmosphere.

Mindil Beach Sunset Market operates throughout Darwin's Dry Season; reopening each year in late April, traditionally on the last Thursday in April and finishes on the last Thursday of October.

Mindil Beach Sunset Market is owned and operated by the Mindil Beach Sunset Market Association (MBSMA). The Association, a not-for-profit organisation made up by its members, the stall holders and is completed with a small management team.

So come along and soak up the atmosphere and flavours of the iconic Mindil Beach Sunset Market to experience firsthand what all the fuss is about!
