Sunset during the dry is approx 6.30pm. That's right the best time we found is 5pm and then settle in and wait for the sunset.

Unfortunately due to health and safety the market does not operate when raining.

If a market is called off press releases are sent to all media. If it starts raining after the start of the market, announcements will be made to that effect.

The markets have a variety of ways to keep the kids amused. Pony rides, petting zoo, laughing clowns, jumping castle with some great music and acts for the children’s entertainment and a beautiful beach by the Arafura sea
