The North Australia Research Unit (NARU) was established in 1973 to specialise in research in northern Australia and to provide a base and logistic support for ANU and other Australian and overseas institutions undertaking research in northern Australia. The campus occupies a site of approximately 3.9 hectares in the suburb of Brinkin, Darwin, Northern Territory. At the NARU campus, ANU has established the Arafura Timor Research Facility (ATRF), a joint venture between the Australian Institute of Marine Science and ANU. NARU operates as a campus of ANU, managed by the Facilities & Services Division.
