Mindl Beach Sunset Market – Darwin


No trip to Darwin in the dry season would be complete without an evening at the Mindl Beach Market.

These markets have now been running for more than 30 years and are held every Thursday and Sunday from the end of April through to the end of October every year. Thursday is usually the bigger night with Sunday being a smaller market and usually patronised more by the locals.

The Very Cool & Tasty Fitzroy

Just 3 kilometres out of Melbourne city is the suburb of Fitzroy. A number of reasons have made this a must see and experience destination when in Melbourne. It has become well known for its little bars, restaurants & cafes, street art and markets.

It’s easily accessible on a tram route or there are a couple of pay car parks in the street.

Caravanning, is there a better way to catch up with friends?

We have met some lovely people through caravanning holidays, some we know are just in passing, but they have made a short stay very enjoyable, others closer to home that we’ve clicked with and known we would no doubt meet again in our travels. Last weekend we did just that, by joining in on an arranged get together with like-minded caravan travellers that we got to know from an annual holiday we used to take.  What better way is there to catch up with people, enjoy a few drinks and lots of good food, swap stories of where everyone has been travelling this year and enjoy great company and lots of laughs in the great outdoors.

It’s the Weekend Where’s the Market?


One of my favourite things to do whether on holidays or at home is to go to a good weekend market. There are so many clever crafty, tasty, growing, reading, arty discoveries to be made. Not to mention it’s a great way to get yourself out for a walk and take in what towns have to offer all while supporting local growers and artists and boosting the local economy. In the past twelve months I’ve had the joy of visiting markets in New South Wales, Western Australia, Northern Territory and in South Australia and of those visited, these would be my pick of the best.
