“The Mindil Beach Markets - are a spectacle your kids will love. From market stalls selling all kinds of cheesy trinkets, buskers and fire twirlers, pony rides, jumping castles and masses of stalls with food from all over the world, this place is an assault on your senses. Make sure you get a juice and head to the beach with the throngs of people to watch the sunset display. Very family friendly! https://www.mindil.com.au/”
