The climate is tropical and supports a relaxed, outdoor lifestyle. Spectacular natural attractions such as Litchfield and Kakadu National Parks and the Kimberley region which attract thousands of international tourists each year are within easy reach.
The Territory is building on its strengths to make the future even brighter and is filled with opportunity – for individuals and for families.
