Northern Territory: Humpty Doo
Incorporating photos and Information from Michael Greenslade's former Australian Towns, Cities and Highways site

Humpty Doo is a small town not far from Darwin, the capital city of the Northern Territory.

The town is a popular stopover location for visitors travelling between Darwin and the Kakadu National Park. The main industries are agriculture and tourism, however, most residents commute to Darwin or Palmerston for work. The locality of Humpty Doo is named after the station originally called "Umpity Doo".

The area is well known for the production of mangoes and honey, but has seen a number of crops come and go since it was established. There is also a Royal Australian Navy transmitting station in the area.
