  Port Map

Nhulunbuy is a port town in Australia's Northern Territory region, with population around 3,000. The town is located on Gove Peninsula (Arnhem Land NT) and was created to serve as deepwater port when the bauxite mine and refinery for aluminium were opened in the 1960-70s. The mine was developed by Nabalco (mining and extraction company, 1964-2002). The refinery was closed in 2014, which reduced the town's population by ~1/4.
