Northern Territory

Northern Territory

Despite its immense size, the Northern Territory is the most sparsely populated of Australia’s Federal Territories Home to just 244,000 people, over a quarter of the population are based in the largest city Darwin. The Northern Territory is a major hub of the country’s Indigenous population, who own nearly half of the state’s land. The Aboriginal presence accounts for nearly 15% of the Northern Territory’s population and over 100 different dialects are spoken within its borders. The territory’s economy is mainly supported through the mining industry due to the area’s plentiful natural resources. The Northern Territory is known for its spectacular natural beauty with Australia’s most famous natural landmark Uluru being located in the state outside the city of Alice Springs. Other major sites of interest include Mount Sonder and Jim Jim Falls.
