Access to Housing & Accommodation


Access to Housing & Accommodation

The coastal centre of Nhulunbuy offers a range of rental accommodation options, including houses, townhouses and flats, some of which is held by the private sector.

In addition to those available on the private market, Developing East Arnhem Limited holds up to 250 rental properties, originally owned by Rio Tinto Alcan, which are available at rates competitive against other regional centres.

These properties are available to assist businesses and service providers to move into East Arnhem or sustain existing operations in the region. Available properties will suit both individuals and families and are maintained in good condition.
