Darwin, the largest city in the Northern Territory, is the closest Australian capital city to growing Asian markets, connected through a 24/7 international airport and the only functional deep water port in northern Australia.

NAIF has helped unlock the Territory’s economic potential with loans to projects across a range of sectors such as marine infrastructure, education, airport facilities and aquaculture. To date, NAIF has fully or conditionally approved nearly $800m in support to projects with a total value of $1.4bn. Around $2bn of public benefit is forecast through these projects, alongside more than 2,613 jobs.
