Don't go home empty handed. Find local treasures, handmade gifts and artworks at markets, galleries and little boutiques across the Territory.

Go shopping for high quality, memorable Australian souvenirs like lustrous pearls, crocodile leather accessories, or Aboriginal prints and carry a piece of the Northern Territory with you forever.

Take home original Aboriginal art

Drop into galleries and Aboriginal art centres in the Territory's major cities and regional communities for the chance to purchase one-off artworks.

You'll often get the chance to meet traditional, emerging, and well-known artists to learn about the meanings behind their striking and diverse works. Look for paintings, hand-woven textiles, carvings and silk prints.

South Sea pearls

Invest in a strand of South Sea Pearls or drool over pieces of jewellery combining Northern Territory pearls with exotic stones in the windows of Paspaley Pearls. These large and lustrous pearls are found in the unspoilt waters off the Top End.

Snap up designer crocs

Keep a memento of your close encounters with the Territory's saltwater crocodiles in the form of crocodile leather products. Browse Di Croco in Darwin for internationally-designed handbags, belts, wallets, purses and jewellery.

Linger in Darwin boutiques

Admire the creativity of Territorians and visit the locally owned boutiques in Alice Springs and Darwin. Buy distinctive jewellery, homewares, clothing, and shoes.

Take some time out to savour the intoxicating fragrances of the indulgent natural skincare plus vintage inspired clothing in Viva La Body in Darwin.

Vibrant open-air markets

Soak up the tropical night air, as well as aromas of foods from all over the world beneath magical sunsets and browse the stalls at Mindil Beach Sunset Markets. Nab natural skin care, local art, jewellery and clothing. Also make sure you visit Nightcliff and Parap markets, and the Rapid Creek Markets.

Look out for regular and one-off markets in regional centres, especially the Katherine Community Market, Alice Springs Night Markets, and Todd Mall Markets.
