Northern Territory – Rural/Urban

Posted in Australia, Northern Territory (Australia), Northern Territory (Australia) Basics by mjoymatheson on August 14, 2008

The capital city of Northern Territory is Darwin. The population is not concentrated in coastal regions but rather along the Stuart Highway, the single paved road that links Darwin to southern Australia. The other major settlements are Katherine, Alice Springs, Tennant Creek and Nhulunbuy in the territory’s north-east. Despite the large size of the territory, roughly two-thirds of the inhabitants live in and around Darwin and Alice Springs. Away from those centers, settlement is widely dispersed and focused on a handful of mining towns, aboriginal towns, and rural service centers.
