The Northern Territory
is a Federal Territory of Australia, occupying much of the centre of the mainland continent, as well as the Central Northern regions. It is bordered to the west by Western Australia, to the east by Queensland and to the south by South Australia.
With a land area near Mongolia in size and only a quarter million inhabitants, the Northern Territory is known as the ‘real outback’, representing nature on a grand scale and containing some of the most recognisable natural icons in Australia.
The Northern Territory contains hundreds of rare species of flora, native wildlife and, of course, crocodiles in the Territory’s 52 national parks and nature conservation reserves, while the outback offers vast wide-open spaces and pioneering journeys.
The NT is also renowned for the Aboriginal cultural experiences it offers. With 30% of the Territory’s population being Aboriginal compared to 1-2% for the nation as a whole, the NT offers a rich array of Aboriginal culture with its 40,000-year-old traditions – including basket weaving, spear fishing, story telling, rock art and bush tucker tastings on Aboriginal guided tours.
The Territory also contains the world’s biggest collection of Aboriginal art.
