Place Names Committee

The Register

The Place Names Register, as established under Section 11B of the Place Names Act contains all known information on approved place names, be they a road, park or natural feature in the Northern Territory.

Want to know where a place is, its correct spelling or how it was named and why, then Search the Register.

The Register is continually being updated and new place names added, so what you read today may be different tomorrow.

Place names approved (and registered) since 2007 are listed under recent approvals.

Place names in the Register are divided into seven data or place names types and allocated one of six status values.
