It isn't called the TOP END for nothing!
With witty editing, masterful puns, searing social insight and - when all that fails - the use of the word 'clacker', the NT News has changed the face of the Australian front page. They're tops!

While a picture may tell a thousand words, they've proved that the combination of a photo and caption is really what delivers the message. And they don't need a thousand words - most of the time eight or less will do.

I WAS MUGGED BY A CROC
DOG KILLED BY YOWIE
FROG STRUCK BY LIGHTNING
WHY I STUCK A CRACKER UP MY CLACKER


Now, for the first time ever, the news team who came up with these attention-grabbing gems have ventured into the archives to share some of their favourite front pages with the world. WHAT A CROC! is a collection of the funniest, craziest, wittiest, most memorable front pages from the NT NEWS. Do yourself a favour!

'THERE'S MORE TO US THAN CROC FRONT PAGES AND WITTY HEADLINES. WHEN WE FIGURE OUT WHAT THEY ARE, WE'LL LET YOU KNOW. P.S. WE LOVE SHOUTING.
