Familiarise yourself with remote communities in the NT

BushTel profiles 76 remote communities in the Northern Territory. Learn about things like languages, demographics, and health services in that community. BushTel also has reduced profiles for Homelands (also known as ‘Family Outstations’), which are small communities of Aboriginal people – usually fewer than 100 – in permanent or semi-permanent residence. Download a map of remote clinics and organisations.

See NT Government’s Aboriginal language map for locations of major language groups in the NT.
