The Northern Territory is the most sparsely populated state or territory in Australia, and one of its most striking. The capital, Darwin, lies nearly as close to Singapore as to Melbourne, an indication of the Northern Territory’s strong ties to Asia. The interior includes some of the Outback’s most dramatic and important landscapes, graced by Australia’s most recognised natural landmark, Uluru.

Communities representing more than 100 nationalities make up the territory’s cultural fabric. Its cities, towns, and rural areas support a wide array of festivals, social events, and opportunities to experience different cultures.


Charles Darwin University hosts more than 4,000 international students, a reflection of its intense commitment to global connections. At the same time, the university serves the entire territory, with campuses in Casuarina, Palmerston, Katherine, and Alice Springs along with a five-classroom facility in Sydney. Charles Darwin University ranks first among all Australian universities for postgraduate employment outcomes.
