Part of the local community
Mindil Beach Markets is an integral part of the local community. Hosting charity based stalls and free community led events that entertain, educate and raise funds for the benefit of all Territorians. It remains a place to gather, connect, engage and plays a vital role in nurturing local talent from all walks of life.
Voted one of Australia’s top 10 cities to visit by Lonely Planet, Darwin is arguably Australia's most cosmopolitan city. It boasts a population from more than 60 nationalities and 70 different ethnic backgrounds including Darwin's traditional owners, the Larrakia people, who remain prominent and active members of the community.
Catch a flick at Deckchair cinema, eyeball a croc or sail across the harbour to the Tiwi Islands and take in the annual football match and aboriginal art sale. Why not plan ahead and take in Darwin Festival, The Darwin Cup Race Carnival, Beer Can Regatta or better still; head bush to Kakadu or Litchfield National Parks to revel in their natural beauty.

Of course, without the generosity of our major supporters and stakeholders, including City of Darwin, Northern Territory Government, the Lott, Channel 7, Leal Technology and St. John Ambulance, this community based event simply wouldn't be possible so we thank each of them for their ongoing involvement and contribution to the safe and successful operation of the markets.
