US Marines are a familiar sight in the Northern Territory, after 10 years in the Top End | ABC News

ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “US Marines are a familiar sight in the Northern Territory, after 10 years in the Top End | ABC News” – below is their description.

In its 10th year of rotating through Darwin’s defence bases, the United States Marine Corps’ presence in the Top End is growing each year. They train with their Aussie counterparts, and the US government is investing millions in infrastructure to further American interests in Australia and the Pacific, but it’s rare for Australians to get a glimpse into what they actually do. The ABC joined the Marines as they worked alongside the Australian Defence Force on a humanitarian response exercise on the Tiwi Islands.

In This Story: Northern Territory

The Northern Territory (aka NT) is a vast federal territory in Australia famed for its Outback desert landscapes. In the arid Red Centre lie the iconic sandstone monolith Uluru (Ayers Rock), the red-rock domes of Kata Tjuta and the sculpted cliffs of Kings Canyon in Watarrka National Park.

Alice Springs is the gateway town to the Red Centre desert.

The NT covers 1,349,129 square kilometres (520,902 sq mi). It is sparsely populated, with a population of only 245,353.

The economy is based largely on mining and petroleum, which during 2018–2019 contributed 23% of the gross state product, or $5.68 billion, accounting for 92.4% of exports.

The capital and largest city is Darwin. The population is concentrated in coastal regions and along the Stuart Highway.
