People often wonder, how big is the Northern Territory? Quick answer: it’s massive!
The Northern Territory - or the NT as the locals call it - is a vast federal territory covering a staggering 1.4million square kilometres - or more than 345 million acres.
What is the NT known for? Vast red-dirt desert landscapes, blue-domed skies and endless horizons, ancient rock formations and an Aboriginal history dating back tens of thousands of years. It’s an incredible place for you to start your cultural adventures in Australia.
The NT is also home to numerous Aboriginal nations each with their own language, culture and stories to share, so you’ll have a chance to really connect.
