A general election was held in the Northern Territory, Australia, on 18 August 2001. The centre-left Australian Labor Party (ALP), led by Clare Martin, won a surprising victory over the then-majority Country Liberal Party (CLP). Before this, the CLP had held 18 out the 25 seats in the Northern Territory Legislative Assembly to the ALP's 7. After this election, the ALP held the majority with 13 seats to the CLP's 10. This gave Clare Martin the Chief Ministership over the incumbent Denis Burke.

Two independents won seats at this election. Former CLP member Loraine Braham won the seat of Braitling and Gerry Wood won the seat of Nelson.
