Welcome to the Shire of Carnarvon

Carnarvon’s unique location, makes it a tropical oasis situated approximately 904km north of Perth on the west coast. Carnarvon is commonly recognised for its banana plantations, tropical fruits, fine seafood and warm climate and situated in the heart of the Gascoyne Region on the doorstep of the Indian Ocean. It is the gateway to Australia’s Ningaloo Coast, and very close proximity to the Ningaloo Reef and World Heritage areas.  Equally, the vast Australian outback will beckon you and a visit to the majestic Kennedy Ranges is not to be missed.  With an exceptional climate (average yearly temp of 26°C), and a vibrant and diverse community which offers exciting culinary delights, you need to come to Carnarvon and ‘Catch a Taste of the Great Life’.
