There is an inconsistency in the quoted area of the City of Darwin and of Greater Darwin (,_Northern_Territory). Both are quoted as 112 square kilometres. Someone is wrong: If I drive 18 kilometres north an then 40 kilometres south east, I'm still in Greater Darwin. That's already over 700 square kilometres. Darwin Harbour, which is part of Greater Darwin is seven time larger than Sydney Harbour. Is Sydney Harbour excluded from Sydney's area calculations? The new Darwin electoral division of Spillett is listed by the Australian Electoral Commission at 127 square kilometres; that is larger than the "official" 112 square kilometres for the whole of Darwin and that is only one electoral division.
