NORTHERN TERRITORY


TOP AVERAGE WAGE AND SALARY INCOME REGIONS, 2006-07

The three SLAs with the highest average annual incomes in 2006-07 were all located in remote areas outside the Darwin SD. Alyangula, a harbour on Groote Eylandt, is where ore from the island's manganese mine is exported; Nhulunbuy, on Gove Peninsula, supports an alumina refinery and bauxite mining operation; whilst Jabiru is a dormitory town for workers of the Ranger Uranium Mine (it also serves as the accommodation and commercial hub for Kakadu National Park). Katherine is the Territory's fourth most populated town and a major regional service centre.

Within the Darwin SD, the top five SLAs recorded very similar average annual incomes in 2006-07.
