Saltwater @ Bundilla is an iconic NT food destination in Darwin showcasing the best of the Territory’s produce. We offer a range of dining options catering for the wide variety of visitors to the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory as well as being a dining venue for locals. We are open for breakfast and lunch with a variety of options using local ingredients. We wish to showcase and engage with the traditional custodians of this land and their culture and we operate under green environmentally friendly credentials.

Our café is a reflection of the landscape it rests on through collaboration with the Larrakia Nation, showcasing local aboriginal artworks throughout the cafe.

Our team of owners/managers are long term Darwin locals and have  high level experience in the food and beverage industry. We bring a fresh new locally based dedicated skill set.

Our food reflects the cultural diversity of Darwin.  We offer cafe style options for breakfast and lunch using locally sourced products from local suppliers with a preference for organic where possible. Our breads, bakery and patisserie items are locally sourced or made in house. 

Seasonality of produce plays a major role in our menu options. Seasonal fresh fruits and vegetables are market and market garden sourced. We only use Territory seafood, Eva Valley or other Territory meats and local bush tucker meats when available.
