The small remote town of Mataranka, about 100km from Katherine, has become a "hot spot" for violence against women.
"Domestic violence is rampant here," Mayor of the Roper Gulf Regional Council, Judy MacFarlane said.
"Most of our after hours cases with the clinic are to do with DV.
"Night after night, it is just ridiculous. Mataranka has a huge problem, predominantly from people who don't live here."
But this weekend, people will be taking a stand.
A march through the town's main street has been organised to raise awareness that DV is not tolerated in the community.
"Family violence is every bodies business and to make a stand with events like the Mataranka community march does make a difference," No More campaign founder Charlie King said.
"Families and children are hurting all across the NT and Australia with the huge number of statistics that are growing at an alarming rate."

While Mataranka has always been a hot spot for violence, in the past couple of months the issue has become more prevalent, CEO of Sunrise Health, Daniel Tyson, said.
"A number of people that came out of their towns when the cyclone came through have stayed and quite often because of the availability of alcohol we see an increase in DV," Mr Tyson said.
"We can't draw definite conclusions, but it is something we have identified which could be a possibility.
"It seems to be linked to the four or five liquor stores in Mataranka."
He said the community is concerned about the high rates of people presenting to the clinic, and in some, more serious cases, being airlifted to Darwin Hospital for treatment.
While the march is bringing the issue to the forefront, with schools and the community getting involved and taking a stand, Mr King has been working with men's groups, in and around Katherine, behind the scenes, through his program, No More.
The goal is to keep instances of DV right down, and he feels he is making headway.
Run through CatholicCare NT, the 10 week program aims to "change the behaviours of men who use violence through counselling and supportive sporting club culture".
"The No More campaign with Catholic Care NT creates awareness around Domestic Family and sexual violence and we use sport and community marches as a vehicle to have a big impact on the community as a whole and to reach out to a wide range of people," Mr King said.
"Please link up and say No More to Family violence, every positive action does make a difference.
"The No More campaign congratulates the town of Mataranka for making a stand against Family violence."
Mr King said his program is provided to schools, CDP programs, men's groups, sport groups as well as women's groups.
The No More community march starts at 8.30am this Sunday.
