The Mall is the main shopping and food service area in the city centre.
Raintree Park at the northern end of the Mall is popular with tourists and locals at lunchtime with its shady areas, cool ambience and relaxing atmosphere at one of the many alfresco cafes. There are also many outdoor events held in the Mall during the dry season.
Halfway down The Mall is one of Darwin’s oldest pubs, the former Victoria Hotel, a landmark and heritage building. Opposite is the Star Village Arcade, which used to house the old open-air Star Theatre.
The stucco arched façade of the former Commercial Bank now graces the Paspaley Pearls building, the world renowned company specialising in the cultivation and sale of quality south sea pearls.
Follow the historical information plaques up The Mall and learn some interesting facts about the 'Great hurricane' that struck Darwin in 1897, the arrival of the first Chinese people in 1874 and the discovery of pearl shell in Darwin harbour in 1884.
As a shared commercial and community space, some activities in the Mall may require a permit. Permits are available for busking, out-trading, displays or promotions.
