The subtropical coastal town of Carnarvon sits on the edge of the mighty Gascoyne River delta, home to pristine waters, hinterland, and a region abundant with local produce. Time spent in Carnarvon means meeting people from all walks of life and experiencing all that the mid-west of WA has to offer - fishing, 4WDing, rich culture, diverse food, swimming and more.
The Carnarvon RCSWA site was first established back in 2009.
The student accommodation is a four-bedroom, two-bathroom fully-furnished house within walking distance of the town centre. It features a swimming pool, WiFi internet, security doors, alarm system, and is fully equipped with kitchen appliances and linen.
