Mindil Market is one of the ‘must do’ things in Darwin. Whenever you tell someone you’re going to Darwin they ask if you’re going to the market. I even find myself asking people now that I’ve been.
However it’s not just the market that it is well-known for. It’s the sunset on the nearby beach that attracts most people. The market is just on the other side of the sand dunes. Most people make sure they arrive in daylight, buy takeaway dinner from one of the many stalls and go and sit on the beach, ready for the normally fantastic sunset that awaits. I chose Thai but there are so many nationalities to try.
Once the sun has set, people either go home/to their hotels or go back to shopping at the stalls. Live bands begin to play as well giving the market a very festive, fun atmosphere.
This performer moved when someone put money in the bowl. One little girl got the fright of her life when he moved after she put some money in the bowl. She ran back screaming to her parents.
Delicious and healthy???? It is possible.
