Top End NT

Top End region map from coast to coastAcross the Northern Territory, our projects are working to improve our understanding of remote, data-poor environments. Our research focuses on the Daly River catchment, greater Darwin region, Kakadu National Park and the Gulf of Carpentaria (read more about Kakadu and the Gulf). Logistical challenges and safety hazards are constant considerations for environmental science in the Top End, so our research is seeking improve survey and monitoring methods through the use of environmental DNA and other novel techniques and technologies. Tropical invasive weeds and fire are also key research priorities. Other Hub research across northern Australia, on topics such as Indigenous land management, threatened species and carbon, is also generating information to support the management of environmental resources in the Top End. You may also be interested in our projects conducting research across the entire northern Hub region.
