Sunset Sounds

Round out your weekend every Sunday by the beach with the sweet sounds of local musicians backdropped by an iconic Top End sunset. Sounds dreamy, right?

By Tierney Seccull

RETURNING IN 2024, and rolling through until September, Sunset Sounds invites you to come together on the Cullen Bay lawns for a relaxing arvo of music and food before the week kicks in.

The Cullen Bay precinct has recently undergone an extensive revitalisation project, ripe for your enjoyment. With improved facilities including new toilets, lighting, gardens, and a fresh new vibe, Cullen Bay General Manager Mike Van Der Ley reckons it’s the place to be.

“[Sunset Sounds] brings people to the best location in Darwin for watching the Darwin sunset over the harbour. We’ve got open lawns, we’ve got food vans, we’ve got music, so it’s just a great venue for people to come,” he says.

“Families have got a safe space for their children to play, the older people can listen to the music and have a chat and a drink, so it’s really the perfect spot in Darwin to watch the sunset.”

You’re welcome to bring your own feeds along but if you’re keen to kick into full relaxation mode, let someone else take care of the cooking – and the dishes – and grab a bite to eat from one of the local restaurants or food trucks, with burgers, pizza, ice cream and, of course, fish and chippies on the menu.

This is also a pet-friendly event, so bring along your pooches on a leash – not Off The Leash, wink-wink – so no-one has to miss out. Head seaside and enjoy live local tunes as the sun sets on another Sunday.
