Whether you like the buzz of a modern tropical cosmopolitan city or the community spirit of small country towns, the Northern Territory has it all. With tens of thousands of people who have migrated from the southern states or from overseas making the Northern Territory what it is today.

Three quarters of the Northern Territory’s population reside in its five regional centres, which also serve as vital supply and service bases for dozens of smaller remote communities. With an expanse of distance between all.

The largest number of Northern Territorians live in the Top End Region in the capital city of Darwin and satellite city of Palmerston and surrounds. The Central Region (including Alice Springs) is the second most populated area. The remainder live in Katherine, Tennant Creek in the Barkly Region, the coastal town of Nhulunbuy or in the hundreds of other small remote communities throughout the Northern Territory.
