Housing solutions for every family

We offer housing options for employees who choose to move to Hopetoun, with a range of sizes and locations within the town available. Our houses and townhouses are centrally located, within easy reach of the local school and many overlook beautiful coastal or bushland views. All homes were built within the last 10 years and are well maintained at all times.

We recognise that our employees’ families come in all sizes and combinations of ages, and we are happy to discuss housing needs to find a suitable home from the properties available.

A variety of housing options are available in and around Hopetoun.

Great on-site facilities

Whether you decide to take our drive-in, drive-out or fly-in, fly-out employment option, you get to enjoy the best of both worlds: live at home during your shift break and stay in our site accommodation when you work. Our camp includes two gyms – one for cardio and one dedicated to weight training – plus shared entertainment areas including outdoor BBQ facilities, indoor snooker, a cricket pitch and running circuit.

Our cabins offer contemporary, modern facilities in a well laid out camp.
