Once You Arrive
Head for the beach and you’re bound to bump into a sunset coloured caravan half way down the main food strip; the official Mindil info booth!
In it you’ll find informative staff, bottles of icy cold water, Mindil Beach Market merchandise and useful information about other attractions around Darwin. Behind the van you will find the ATMs.
This map shows you where we're located and helps you find other useful facilities such as ATMs, toilets, taxi and bus drop off points, St John Ambulance and the main entertainment and private function spaces. If you still can’t find what you’re looking for, give us a call or come and see us at the sunset coloured caravan.
