Asked by Wiki User

The Northern Territory does not have an official motto.

The northern region is unofficially known as the Top End, while the southern desert regions are known as the Red Centre.

Some websites will report that the motto is "The Never-never", but this is not the case; nor is this nickname restricted to the Northern Territory.

What is the population a territory needs to become a state?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

There is no specific limit required for either the Northern territory or the Australian Capital Territory to become a state. For either territory to become a state would be a fairly straightforward matter. Australia's constitution of 1901 did (and does) allow for the admission of new states into Australia. Section 121 of the constitution states that all that is required for a new state (or, in this case, for a territory to be declared a state) is for the Federal Parliament to agree. This even means that the Parliament could admit the Northern Territory as a state whether or not the NT agreed to it.

What is the best time to travel to Darwin?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Winter and early Spring are the best seasons for travelling to Darwin. The weather is warm and pleasant without the humidity. Avoid Darwin between November and March as this is the monsoon season.

The advantages of the monsoon season are that the weather remains consistently warm, the storms are spectacular, and travel resources such as accommodation are cheaper.

Tours are running all year and the weather can be glorious, while there is a great variety of food.

The entire Northern Territory is in area code 08, which is +61 8. The local number is a further 8 digits.

Asked by Wiki User

No. Surprisingly, even though the Top End of Australia is closest to the equator, the humidity of the Northern Territory (which is a territory, not a state) keeps the actual mean temperatures down.

The hottest state is Western Australia. The world heat record goes to Marble Bar in Western Australia, which recorded maximum temperatures equalling or exceeding 37.8°C on 161 consecutive days, between 30 October 1923 and 7 April 1924.

When was Kakadu National Park created?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Kakadu National Park was declared under the National Parks and Wildlife Conservation Act 1975 (NPWC Act) in three stages between 1979 and 1991. Stage Two was declared on 28 February 1984. In March 1978, a claim was lodged under the Land Rights Act for the land included in Stage Two of Kakadu. The land claim was partly successful and, in 1986, three areas in the eastern part of Stage Two were granted to the Jabiluka Aboriginal Land Trust. A lease between the Land Trust and the Director of National parks was signed in March 1991.
