  • Good food variety, many interesting stalls and shops, live entertainment. Well worth a look on a Saturday morning
  • Family friendly market, with AMAZING food. Check out the local handicraft stalls, hidden treasures all throughout.
  • Great food options. Good range of shopping. A MUST for Saturday breakfast/lunch. Limited seating.
  • Interesting variety of goods for the ladies, nothing fir the guys. There may be good food if you are in the know but we chose the worst Asian food I've ever eaten.
  • Fun Saturday morning thing to do. Awesome food and shopping. Lots of delicious produce for sale.

Where to stay in Darwin

A small but distinctly cosmopolitan city, Darwin offers a surprisingly diverse range of lodgings, with most hotels located in or near the central business district. Despite this, finding a comfortable room during the peak May-to-September season can be extremely difficult, especially if you don't book ahead of your visit. If planning months in advance isn't an option, consider staying at a backpacker hostel or guesthouse outside the city center. Many of these smaller establishments offer access to free Wi-Fi and outdoor swimming pools.
