The land consists of four agricultural areas which are available to suitably experienced and capable developers on long term leases. Interested developers may register their interest in one or all four areas.
Agriculture is Australia’s fastest growing sector and is key to our food security and to Australia’s economic recovery.
The Northern Territory has diverse and well-established agriculture, forestry and fisheries sectors, with plant-based industries alone worth over $350 million (2019) and over 135,000 tonnes of produce grown annually. The Northern Territory is a recognised
producer and supplier of high-quality mangoes, melons and Asian vegetables to domestic and international markets.
