The Northern Territory, abbreviated NT, is a federal Australian territory located in the country's central and central northern regions. The area is world-famous for its Outback desert landscapes.
The Northern Territory of Australia shares its border with Queensland, Western Australia, and South Australia. The geographical features surrounding the northern region of the territory include the Timor Sea, the Gulf of Carpentaria, the Arafura Sea, and some other Indonesian archipelago islands.
Covering an area of 520,902 sq mi, the Northern Territory became the third-largest federal division of Australia. It is also the world's 11th-largest country subdivision.
With a population of 246,500 residents, the NT is sparsely populated. The majority of the inhabitants reside in the capital city of Darwin.
Humans may have inhabited the area as long back as around 48 to 68 thousand years ago. After the British arrived, four of them tried to settle in the NT, out of which three did not succeed due to starvation and despair.
The Northern Territory is home to several primary and secondary schools, either publicly or privately funded. One university opened in 1989 as the Northern Territory University, which is now renamed as the Charles Darwin University.
There is the Northern Territory Library, which is the research and reference library of the territory.
Transport services include a connected network of roadways that includes two National Highways. There is also the Adelaide-Darwin railway network connecting the two cities via Alice Springs. Darwin International Airport is a significant international and domestic airport in the NT.
