About Our State

The Northern Territory lies within the tropics mainly consists of Savannah woodlands with pockets of rainforest, with a coastline that is mainly flat and backed by swamps, mangroves and mudflats, rising to a plateau no higher than 450 meters. In the north, monsoonal influences produce two definite seasons known locally as "the wet" (October to April), when the coast is subject to tropical cyclones, and "the dry" (May to September).

Society & Culture

Darwin, the capital is situated in the north-western corner of the Territory. It is the only capital city in Australia that has suffered serious attacks during its history. The first being the Japanese bombing, and the second being Cyclone Tracy which completely leveled the city. This is why you will find a very modern city, but with strong community ties that are the result of its volatile history.

There used to be a slogan for the Northern Territory. "You will never ever know, if you never ever go", and that about explains it. It is one of those rare places on Earth that can't be put into words.
