History/people and language
Much of the southern three-quarters of the Territory is desert or semi-arid plain. The Macdonnell Ranges crosses the Territory in central Australia and the well-known monolith, Uluru (Ayers Rock) is near the south-west corner of the Territory.
The major land uses in the Northern Territory are livestock grazing and other protected areas including indigenous uses. These two land uses account for nearly 90 percent of the Territory's area.
