Northern Australia, which is all of the Northern Territory and those parts of Queensland and Western Australia north of the Tropic of Capricorn, is a diverse and vibrant region rich in opportunities to drive growth in jobs and investment for the benefit of all Australians.

The Australian Government is committed to supporting resilient and sustainable economic growth and maximising Northern Australia's potential. This was reaffirmed in the next five year plan, released November 2021, Our North, Our Future 2021-2026: Targeted Growth, which sets out a clear, coordinated plan to build a strong, prosperous economy, and a safe, secure Australia.
