Alyangula is a township on Groote Eylandt in the Northern Territory.

Groote Eylandt Mining Company (GEMCO) established Alyangula as the residence for the mining company workers in the late 1960s. The township was established under a special purpose lease between GEMCO, Anindilyakwa Land Council and the Anindilyakwa Land Trust. The township of Alyangula is an unincorporated territory within the northern region of the Northern Territory.

In the 2016 census, the township recorded a population of 873 people who are employees of GEMCO and are almost exclusively non-indigenous (aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people made up 8.3% of the population). The township boasts a first-class resort and two clubs, an arts centre, a coffee shop, a golf course and other sporting facilities, plus all the facilities you would expect in a town servicing nearly a thousand people and subsidised by a mining operation. It is claimed the town also has the cheapest fuel in Australia subsidised by the mine (Feb 2018 Unleaded fuel is 97.3cpl).
