old comments[edit]

Alongside the arrogant approach adopted by then Chief Minister Shane Stone, it is believed that most Territorians were reluctant to adopt the poor offer which was made.

This sentence is not very NPOV.
btw, how many inhabitants live in the NT?

About 170,000 or 1% of the population of Australia.

Here it says large parts of the NT are "in the hands of Aboriginal peoples." There should be something about that in the article.

Coat of Arms[edit]

Not a criticim of the article for me, it looks great. Though if someone could get around to arranging putting up the Coat of Arms for the NT that would be awesome mainly because the Flag and Coat of Arms ought to be included (if we are being pedants) in the "Dependant Territories" lists of Flags or Coats of Arms.

You have forgotten sport. Northern Territory hasn't got NRL, AFL or Super 14 teams. What is the most important sport? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 9:55, 31 October 2005 (UTC)


the climate diagramm seems somewhat screwed up... should be reformatted somehow (IMO) JohnScarecrow (talk) 17:32, 23 September 2009 (UTC)


The 2006 Census revealed that of the Northern Territory's population, 68.4% is of European descent. 64,491 (30.6%) English with 44,662 (20.2%), Irish with 14,346 (6.8%), Scottish with 11,759 (5.6%), German with 7,729 (3.7%) and Italian with 3,308 (1.5%). Indigenous Australian people make up 32.5% of the Northern Territory's population, while Chinese people with 4,081 make up (1.9%).

68.4% + 32.5% + 1.9% = 102.8% !?! Perhaps some clarification is needed. Bozzio 11:19, 1 August 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Bozzio (talkcontribs)

I saw on some other page that, according to the ABS, this is because some respondents identify more than one descent. Wikiain (talk) 23:46, 22 May 2017 (UTC)

The 1976 population figure of 97,090 looks out of whack with those before and after it. Wikiain (talk) 23:46, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
