- FLOSS ADAMS

MINDIL Beach Sunset Markets has made a stunning return after last week’s lockdown.

Under the iconic fiery Darwin sunset, tourists and locals were able to get their patiently awaited laksa fix.

The popular evening markets, which overlook the ocean, have been unable to operate since a lockdown was declared for Darwin and Katherine on August 16. Two markets were missed. Mindil Beach Sunset Markets general manager Peter

Ayre said stall holders were excited see the crowds return on Thursday night.

“Most of our stallholde­rs will be here,” Mr Ayre said on Thursday. “As far as crowds go we’ve had a number of calls asking if the markets are on, we’re expecting reasonable crowds,” he said.

Mr Ayre urges people to remember to use the check-in app even when visiting markets.

“Even though lockdown has been lifted if people can do their best to social distance and check-in,” he said.

Locals and tourists have two months left to visit the Mindil Beach Markets before operations temporaril­y cease for the wet season.
