• Carnarvon is located 904 kilometres north of Perth on the North West Coastal Highway. A coastal town, Carnarvon has a moderate tropical climate and is famous for its banana plantations. The rugged coastline only a short drive north of Carnarvon features outstanding coastal cliffs at Cape Cuvier, plus great fishing, swimming and snorkelling all year round. Pack a hamper and visit classical Australian waterholes - Rocky Pool and Chinaman's Pool. When day turns into night sit back and gaze into our clear, star-filled skies. First settled in 1876, Carnarvon has had a colourful history, not to mention a traumatic beginning.
