The Territory - The Place We Call Home
Whether it’s raising a family, fast-tracking your career, running a business, camping in the bush, barbecuing by the beach, watching a sunset or gazing at stars, there’s plenty of reasons why we love this place we call home.
Home has never been more important to us all after the unusual year we’ve had. The safe, vibrant and welcoming Northern Territory has become a haven not only for Territorians, but also those who have returned home to be near family, and those who looked north, saw something better and chose to make the Territory home.
While home means different things to each of us, the laid-back lifestyle of the Territory, our ancient Aboriginal culture, important cultural sites, adventure experiences, diverse wildlife, and the stunning natural landscape on our doorstep makes for a heady mix to keep us here.
Nature therapy doesn’t get much better than in the NT, which is quirky and creative, from the bustling capital city of Darwin to our outback towns and communities full of characters and diversity. It’s also home for more than 246,000 people from 100 different nationalities.
Above all, whether you’re a die-hard local, have returned here, or recently moved here, the Territory is the place to settle with our families and pets, reunite with friends, make new ones and enjoy the simple things in a relaxed, carefree way. It’s the place to build memories alongside a business or a new career.
There's a certain feeling – something magical – here that truly makes you appreciate the beauty around you. The Territory leaves its mark on everybody. It’s why so many of us call this place home.
