Darwin City Mall more pleasant than Casuarina or Palmerston shopping centres but not as much variety. Plenty of boutiques, shoe stores, jewellery, indigenous art, and souvenir shops. Different than your regular City Mall. Also checkout the Mitchell Centre, corner of Mitchell and Knuckey streets.
The Good Luck Shop Nightcliff Shopping Village. Lots of interesting trinkets and unusual gifts. Worth a browse.
Raw Cloth Aralia St Shops, fabulous locally designed and handsewn fashions by mother and daughter team Rhonda and Jo. Recognised as one of Australia’s top emerging designers, inspired by local seasons and colours. A must-visit.
Greenies organic produce Rapid Creek Shopping Centre, Trower Road. Organic, pesticide free, and locally grown food and products.
Viva La Body Cavanagh St, Darwin City and Darwin Airport. Luscious locally made soaps and body products.
Nightcliff Shopping Village Progress Drive. The corner supermarket has a great deli and good selection of wine, and fresh mostly local fruit and veg. The library has free internet access, plus there’s a post office, dentist, osteopath, fish shop, café, Indian restaurant, playground, and markets on Sunday mornings.
Casuarina Shopping Square 247 Trower Road, Casuarina. Think Westfields but smaller. Regular everyday shopping centre with all the usuals, Sportsgirl, Cue, City Beach, Coles, K-Mart, Woolworths, Big-W etc.
Palmerston Shopping Centre, Palmerston about 15km south of Darwin City. Same as Casuarina Shopping Square, but there’s a Target store as well.
