Fannie Bay Super Pizza is an amazing kid friendly restaurant. As a Mum to four young kids I know taking kids out to dine at a restaurant can be challenging and tricky most of the time. Will the kids like the food, will the kids be too noisy or messy, will it be too busy, is the place family friendly? What do they have to keep my kids entertained or will I have to put an Ipad or my phone in front of them to keep them busy. Fannie Bay Super pizza ticks all the boxes for a family friendly restaurant and it is fast becoming a favourite place for my family to go to.

Some have playrooms/playgrounds which we have indicated and all have some sort of meal deal for the kids! Kids eat free or other special offers. We hope you enjoy a night out with your family!

Darwin markets are pretty unique. If you travel interstate or overseas the markets elsewhere are just not the same. During the dry season the outdoors lifestyle is in full swing. Many families visit various markets with their interstate guests, or just as a family outing. Nothing beats taking a picnic rug, chairs or just sitting on the sand at Mindil beach. Soaking up the atmosphere. There are still a few markets that occur all through the year including the wet season. Please see our Market page for a full list of when and where each market is held. Here are two of our favourite Dry season markets!
