The Northern Territory is Australia's 'outback state' offering a wide variety of climates and a remaining heritage of Aboriginal culture. NT has more than 2800 strata properties on title representing over 24,000 units. The state capital, Darwin, was named after Charles Darwin. Darwin is forecasted to continue strong growth in the strata property sector due to the presence of military and the mining boom boosting housing construction. The population of the NT is approximately 250,000.

According to the ‘Australian National Strata Data Analysis 2018’ conducted by the UNSW, about 10% of Northern Territory’s population live in apartments. 54% of apartment residents in the Northern territory were born outside of Australia, which is slightly less than the national statistic of 57%.
