Carnarvon CEO, David Burton explains why it is worth spending a few days exploring in Carnarvon.
There is more to do in the Shire of Carnarvon than you may initially think, and you’re invited to discover it all for yourself.
“All we ask is for people to visit Carnarvon and enjoy the facilities that we have here. And, do like we do and catch a taste of the great life”, says Shire CEO David Burton.
Located approximately 900km northwest of Perth, Carnarvon - which boasts a great year-round climate - can be accessed by road or air, thanks to the regional airport. Rex Airlines operate daily flights to/from Perth.
“The main thing with Carnarvon is to allow yourself a few days to gain as much experience as possible. Carnarvon has a lot to offer but there is travel involved”, explains David. Inland east of Carnarvon you’ll find the Kennedy Range National Park, but visitors can also enjoy the Indian Ocean and the Whale sharks that visit the waters off Coral Bay, which is located north of Carnarvon.
There is also plenty of history to discover when visiting, including the area’s involvement in the moon landing and impact the plantations have for the State’s food supply. Visit the Carnarvon Tourist Information Centre to find out about all the different activities you can enjoy.
