(a) Top 5 SLAs exclude regions with less than 100 Wage and salary earners
(b) Excludes SLA 'NT Unknown'


The three SLAs with the highest average annual incomes in 2008-09 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 West Arnhem (S) - Jabiru is an area in which uranium mining is undertaken.

Within the Darwin SD, the top five SLAs recorded very similar average annual Wage and salary incomes in 2008-09.
