Mindil Beach a must place to visit if you are in Darwin. Great choices of food and breathtaking views. It's full of people, culture and has great vibes. There is seasonal Mindil Beach Market. This market is the largest in Darwin and by far one of the best markets I have ever been to.
If you're in Darwin you have to see a sunset at Mindil Beach. Get yourself a lime and ginger juice at the market and pick a spot to enjoy the changing colors.
