I was alone on bussiness trip and decided to take a stroll from my hotel I am very glad I did. This place is one of a kind. Nothing like this down south at all! If you are visiting NT you MUST go to Mindil

Mindil Markets will be closed but there are some other (smaller) markets on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Have a look for Parap Markets or Nightcliff Markets.
