The City of Palmerston is a local government area of the Northern Territory. It contains the suburbs of Darwin's satellite city, Palmerston, and is situated between the outer industrial areas of Darwin and the rural areas of Howard Springs. The City covers an area of 56.3 km² and has a population of about 25,000.

The Palmerston City Council consists of the Mayor and six aldermen. The city is not divided into wards, thus each alderman represents constituents from the entire city. Council elections are held on the third Saturday in March in leap years.


The City of Palmerston was incorporated in 1981 under the Local Government Act (NT), and in 2000 was proclaimed the Northern Territory's second city.
