Sunset Sounds

If there’s one thing that tops a beaut Top End sunset by the beach, it’s a beaut Top End sunset by the beach backed by live music. There’s nothing quite like live tunes filling your ears as the sun dips below that smoky, Dry season horizon.

If this sounds like your bag, make tracks to Cullen Bay, as their Sunset Sounds series offers you just that.

Held every Sunday evening through ‘til September, it features local musicians in a sweet seaside setting, the perfect way to see out the weekend.

Cullen Bay Marina Management has teamed up with Activate Darwin to offer the free weekly event, something Cullen Bay General Manager Mike Van Der Ley hopes will draw more people to the seaside space.

“Sunset Sounds showcases our beautiful Cullen Bay Marina to visitors whilst giving local performers a chance to shine,” he says.

“We continue to entice more people to visit us, with big crowds on a Sunday night who come for the best sunset in Darwin.”

The gorgeous lawns of Cullen Beach beckon you to pull up for a picnic, which you are welcome to do. But if you’re up for maxo relaxo, let someone else do the cooking and treat yourself to some takeaway from the many restaurants nearby. We’re talking burgers, pizza, ice cream and, of course, fish and chips!

Gather your people and enjoy some sundowners, as the sun goes down to a beautiful Territory soundtrack.
