Mindil Beach

Venue Mindil Beach, Darwin, Australia

Mindil Beach is a beach in the Northern Territory of Australia, located in the suburb of The Gardens, near Darwin’s central business district. Mindil Beach holds the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets, which runs during the dry season (from May until October) of every year. These markets are popular with both the locals and tourists alike and can attract thousands of people.

When George Goyder surveyed the town of Palmerston, as Darwin was originally known, the name “Mindil” was given and written on maps to the swamp which was behind the town blocks. Rapidly this name came to be applied to the beach in front of the swamp, eventually becoming known as Mindil Beach.
