I've been living in Darwin for ten years and have built up a list of typical Darwin experiences that we recommend.
Mindal Beach markets are a Darwin institution. They operate from April to October on Thursdays and Sundays. Thursday is very popular (up to 10,000 people), while Sundays are a bit silent, with some smaller booth / entertainment, but less crowded and sunsets are equally wonderful. Food stalls reflect the multicultural population of Darwins, bringing a blanket and perhaps a bottle and enjoying the pleasure of Darwin's sunset.
Parap markets are a personal favorite, which are held on Monday from 7 to 2 throughout the year. Find out where the locals buy their fruits and fruits, a pleasant wine, many art and craft booths. Likewise, the Nightcliff markets operate on the 7th of Sunday, 2nd of December.
Visit the Rapid Creek market for the strange and wonderful fruits and vegetables sold by the eclectic mix of local market gardeners. A Wicked Sunday Institute (7 to 2)
NT Museum and Art Gallery
A great local museum. Cyclone Tracey's exhibition, extensive science and scientific collection and the notorious croc "Sweetheart". Annual for several months Telstra Aboriginal Art Awards. The Cornucopia Café is also a great place for chocolate and offers beautiful views of the Arafura Sea. (Sunset or Dinner) While in Darwin, it's a good way to start or end your Top End visit. Many boats offer sunset or dinner.
Darwin Nyugati mozi
This open-air cinema is a short walk from Darwin's city center, a delight to the Deckchair Cinema Darwins. From April to November he is in Australia and the world's films. Comfortable meals are available, a licensed bar, a curry or similar at the end of the week.
The west coast of Darwin is a prime walk to the afternoon sunset. From Mindal Beach to East Point, a walkway offers a wonderful meandering along the coastline of Darwins. The Trailer Boat Club and the Darwin Sailing Club are the ideal place for sunrise and meals.
Casuarina Beach is a delight for the remote beach and sunset walking. Unhappy and enjoy just pubs (or runners) and hairy friends.
Try the Wharf for a casual dining experience. Barramundi and chips are a cut but Thai, snitzels, burgers, etc. Casual, outdoors, simple and affordable. Big fish and dolphins are common in the harbor below when they are looking for a stray chip. Nice place for kids (but lack of fence is a concern for toddlers). Barramundi Fishing
If you are tired, a day fishing in Barramund is a very regional experience. Many crocodiles, birds and wildlife, as well as barramundi. Usually there are up to four boats. Offshore bluewater fishing is also excellent. Darwin Fishing is also available at the harbor.
