Description

Nhulunbuy is a township that is the sixth largest place in the Northern Territory of Australia. Nhulunbuy was created on the Gove Peninsula when a bauxite mine, and a deep water port, were established in the late 1960s, followed by an alumina refinery. At the 2016 census, Nhulunbuy had a population of 3,240 with a median age of 32. The alumina refinery closed in May 2014, which resulted in 1,100 workers being redeployed or made redundant, and reduced the Nhulunbuy population by 700 to 3,240 in the 2016 census. In 2019 a new Arnhem Space Centre near Nhulunbuy, an equatorial satellite launch facility, was announced.
