Northern Territory

The Northern Territory has experienced a period of strong economic growth in recent years. Forecasters expect this growth cycle to continue with a growth rate of more than 6% expected for 2013/14.

Almost 95 per cent of businesses in the Northern Territory are small businesses, with the tourism sector which provides around 18,000 jobs the largest private sector employer.

Mining is the Territory’s most important industry. The Territory is rich in mineral deposits: gold, uranium, nickel, copper and many other minerals are either being mined or are under exploration.

Additionally, the Timor Sea is highly regarded as a prospective location for petroleum resources and contains large-scale oil and gas fields under various stages of operation, construction and consideration. The Northern Territory Government is working to secure and develop these resources.

The Territory’s horticultural sector is also significant and famed for its mangoes, but also produces melons, citrus fruit, bananas, pasture crops, cut flowers, peanuts, table grapes and a range of leafy greens and vegetables.

Housing affordability in the Territory has improved in recent years as the cost of housing finance, ie interest rates, has declined. The median price of a house in Darwin is currently approximately $592,000 while adult Average Weekly Earnings, on a seasonally adjusted basis, approximate $1540.00 per week.
