  STS033-079-044 Groote Eylandt, Northern Territory, Australia November 1989
Groote Eylandt is the largest island in the Gulf of Carpentaria. Located near the eastern shore of the Northern Territory, the island is governed as part of that province. The highest elevation on the island is Central Hill, 689 feet (210 meters) above sea level, which is located near the center of the island. A small airport with an east-west runway (barely discernible as a light colored, east-west oriented, linear feature on this image) is located near the mid section of the west side of Groote Eylandt. Manganese ore and tropical fruits are the two major economic products that are presently exported from the island.
