Abstract: Aedes aegypti is the recognised vector of the mosquito borne disease, Dengue Fever in Australia, and is present in northern Queensland. A survey to determine whether it has been introduced into Northern Territory communities was conducted at the following centres: Mataranka - approximately 450 km south of Darwin on the Stuart Highway, and with a population of approximately 130 people. Roper Bar Store - approximately 200 km east of Mataranka. Maranboy Police Station - approximately 18 km east of the Stuart Highway on the Beswick Road, and with three families in residence. Bamyili - approximately 28 km east of the Stuart Highway on the Beswick Road, with a population of approximately 410 people. Beswick - approximately 63 km east of the Stuart Highway, with a population in the vicinity of 270 people . Ngukurr community could not be included due to the vehicle crossing over the Roper River being flooded at the time of the survey.
