One of the most sought after suburbs of Darwin is Bayview with a median house price of $1,173,500 in Q1 2011. Situated on the southern edge of the CBD, Bayview’s close proximity to the city and waterfront lifestyle has made it one of the most sought after suburbs for the past 8 years.
The other million dollar suburb in the Northern Territory is Larrakeyah. The older style Territory homes of Larrakeyah, has secured this suburb position in NT’s elite million dollar suburb club with a median house price of $1,168,500 in Q1 2011.
