The Northern Territory represents one-sixth of the territory of Australia and can be separated into two main parts – the Top End and the Red Centre. Typical for the Top End are the rainforests and savannah landscapes, while the Red Centre is known for the dry lands of the Simpson Desert. The state is surrounded by the Timor Sea on the north, by Queensland on the east, by Western Australia on the west and by South Australia on the south.

 

The Northern Territory occupies 1.35 million sq km of which 1.09 sq km are in the tropical climate zone. There is a 6200km-long coastline with a 450m-high Arnhem Land plateau at the back. The territory is crossed by the Macdonnell Ranges (600m) and the famous monolith Uluru is at its south-west end. There are three main kinds of rivers – flowing into the Timor Sea (Victoria and Daly), into the Arafura Sea (Adelaide, Mary, South Alligator and East Alligator) and into the Gulf of Carpentaria (Roper and McArthur). The rivers in the mainland are dry throughout most of the year and they get lost in the Simpson Desert.
The population of the Northern Territory is nearly 190 000 people and about 78 000 live in Darwin. Darwin is the capital of the state and its main port situated on the north-west coast.
