In this report we outline the scale and composition of population ageing impending in the Northern Territory as the context for presenting results from a large survey of seniors conducted in late 2013 and early 2014. The survey was conducted in partnership with the Council on the Ageing, NT. This report summarises the results of the survey and examines the policy, services and infrastructure needs associated with the rapid anticipated expansion in the seniors' cohort in the Northern Territory. We discuss the challenges and opportunities for creating age-friendly communities and environments based on findings from this research. The aim is to provide policy makers in the NT with information for developing age-friendly communities and to deliver a research baseline for the strategic planning of services and infrastructure by government, service providers and others.
