    The Mindil Beach Sunset Markets are the perfect place to watch a famous Darwin sunset. Bring a blanket, a cold drink and try a plate of one of the delicious cuisines available. Finish the night with chocolate filled donuts, yum! If you'd prefer to relax with a Thai massage and pick up homemade mango chutney then head down to the Rapid Creek Sunday Markets.
