Alyangula is a township on Groote Eylandt in the Northern Territory.

History

Groote Eylandt Mining Company (GEMCO) established Alyangula as the residence for the mining company workers in the late 1960s.[1] The township was established under a special purpose lease between GEMCO, Anindilyakwa Land Council and the Anindilyakwa Land Trust.[2] The township of Alyangula is an unincorporated territory within the northern region of the Northern Territory.

Present day

The township has a population of over 1200 people who are employees of GEMCO and are almost exclusively non-indigenous. [1] [3] The township comprises a first-class resort and two clubs; an arts centre; a coffee shop; a golf course and other sporting facilities; a swimming pool; a church; half a dozen shops; a bank; a post office and a travel agency. The township also has a school; a child care centre; a training centre; an area health centre; and a court house and police station.[1]
