Shine Gifts and Fashion, a locally owned and operated business opened in Cullen Bay in 2008 and at Darwin Waterfront in 2011. In 2020 the business was expanded to double the size at Darwin Waterfront! The expanded Waterfront shop and is home to over 2000 cool tropical garments and loads of gifts and souvenirs!  Because Darwin Waterfront is so  popular, the owners decided that from the beginning of 2024 Shine Gifts and Fashion will operate only at Darwin Waterfront, with the Cullen Bay shop being phased out.

Darwin Waterfront shop is stocked with cool tropical clothing, colourful wall art and home decor, beautiful opal and pearl jewellery, children’s bracelets made in-store, and necessities for the beach such as sarongs, sunnies, beach towels and beach toys. If you arrive in Darwin without a hat, ‘Shine’ has the answer with some top range, sized Men’s and unisex toyo and straw hats, ladies fashion hats, ‘Darwin’ caps and hats for kids. 

Fabric choices for garments now include Bamboo, 100% Linen, Indian Cotton, Indonesian Rayon, and fibre blends which have been chosen for their versatility, cool comfort and easy care.  Most garments are great for travel as they can be washed, dried on hangers and need no ironing. The owners design and source cool tropical garments which range from sizes XXS to 5XL. 

The owners of Shine Gifts and Fashion are passionate about providing unique products so that you can go away with a real NT souvenir. Their extensive range includes drink coolers and coffee mugs in Aboriginal designs, shot glasses, coasters, crocodile products, drink bottle holders, stubby coolers and fridge magnets which are labelled ‘Darwin’ or the ‘NT’. They even sell ‘Darwin’ croc mints!

The shop also has a nice lot of post-cards, many of which show tourist destinations that the staff have photographed and had printed. All are labelled to show their location, and even include a cheeky crocodile photographed at Corrobboree Billabong.
