The Northern Territory ("NT") is a territory of Australia.
Darwin is its capital city, but there are not many other sizeable settlements in this territory, the most sparsely populated region in Australia.
Formerly controlled by the State government of South Australia, the Northern Territory is home to several notable towns and natural phenomena which give it its character - the most famous of which is Uluru (a.k.a. Ayers Rock), the Devils Marbles, Alice Springs, and Katherine.
- Northern Territory is still a territory as it relies on 10% of the Australian GDP to financially support themselves.
- For a brief time between 1927 and 1931 the Northern Territory was divided into North Australia and Central Australia at the 20th parallel of the South latitude.
- During 1927 and 1931, parts of the Northern Territory were considered in the Kimberley Plan as a possible site for the establishment of a Jewish Homeland, understandably considered the "Unpromised Land".
