Darwin is closer to Indonesia’s Capital than it is to its own. This remote city is on the north coast of the Northern Territory in Australia.
Mindil beach is famous for it’s iconic Sunset Markets. Lined with by palm trees and perfectly positioned to enjoy beautiful sunsets, this is a great place to spend the evening. The market stalls are set up twice a week during April to October (their dry season). Stalls sell everything from didgeridoos to street food (although no alcohol).
There is a carnival atmosphere on these warm evenings with plenty of live musicians and entertainers, but do not come to this beach to sunbathe and swim. There are numerous crocodiles basking in and around the shoreline (you can usually spot them from the bridges that cross the rivers about town), sea snakes, and the lethal box jellyfish is partialled to the waters in this region so even a paddle is out of the question on this pretty beach.
