As part of its establishment, Rio Tinto provided DEAL with 250 properties to support economic development in East Arnhem. DEAL manages and maintains these housing assets in Nhulunbuy to support ongoing economic and business growth.
DEAL housing assets are used to:
- attract and encourage new and expanded economic activity; and
- support the operation of the region’s existing business and service providers.
Rental application forms will only be accepted from an employing business, Aboriginal corporation or government agency. Applications by other business entities may be considered by exception.
The DEAL housing portfolio is currently at full capacity. However, DEAL maintains a waitlist for approved housing applications and considers a range of criteria in determining allocation priority. It’s important to note that the turnover of DEAL housing is very low. While we do encourage applications from all businesses with upcoming housing needs in Nhulunbuy, we are currently unable to provide an indication of expected wait times.
Nhulunbuy also has a private rental market.
Housing updates are posted regularly on DEAL’s Facebook page.
