Main content area


11 July 2019

A new map will help inform and transform the way business, policy and program decisions are made in the north.  

The Office of Northern Australia launched the map at the Developing Northern Australia Conference today in Karratha, Western Australia.

The map uses new spatial data and information from Geoscience Australia to give a much deeper understanding of northern Australia.

At a glance, you will see:  

  • population centres
  • topographic features
  • local climates
  • geographic boarders
  • mineral and energy deposits
  • petroleum gas fields
  • major infrastructure projects
  • the latest Native Title Determinations and Indigenous Land Use Agreements

This detailed, full-colour map is now available for free online

You can also order a printed copy by emailing
