TOP 5 THINGS TO DO IN THE TOP END!

1.     Markets

There are so many fantastic markets in Darwin that showcase local produce, indigenous arts and crafts, live music, and delicious food. It’s a great way to mix with the locals and doesn’t have to cost you a cent unless you want to grab some lunch or dinner – even then, the food is cheap and tasty compared to dining in a restaurant.
