Northern Territory Government

The Northern Territory is dynamic and progressive yet it retains a friendly relaxed pace that has made it such a popular destination for visitors and a great place to live. The population is the nation’s youngest, at a median age of just 31.3 years, but also the smallest with just over 235 000 people living and working in this vast expanse of land. Northern Territorians are typically vibrant, happy, outdoor-loving people who know how to enjoy life.

The population includes a diversity of more than 100 nationalities who share their cultures. In particular, due to the Northern Territory’s proximity to Asia, the Asian influences are very predominant. The capital city, Darwin is closer to Asia than to any of Australia’s major capital cities. Due to this proximity, the Northern Territory has developed strong diplomatic, cultural and economic ties with South-East Asia. Successive governments have capitalised on trading benefits by promoting the Northern Territory as Australia’s ‘Gateway to Asia’.

Throughout the Northern Territory Indigenous people, represent a quarter of the population and have a strong influence on the region’s culture.

The Northern Territory is over 1.42 million square kilometres in size and represents one fifth of Australia’s total land mass with climatic zones ranging from monsoonal tropics across the ‘Top End’ to the arid red-ochre deserts of Central Australia including the Tanami, Great Sandy and Simpson Deserts.

The Northern Territory’s vibrant economic growth and a raft of multi-million and multi-billion dollar developments position the region as one of Australia’s fastest-growing, with a prosperous future.
