The town flats are accommodation in Nhulunbuy supplied by Rio Tinto Alcan. There is a small rent fee per month for the flats however your accommodation costs are mostly taken care of by the company in exchange for your dedication to the company and working in one of the most remote areas of Australia.
The flats are not furnished so you will need to have your own fridge, couch, TV, washer, dryer etc... Take note that due to the flat design it is a little difficult to move large couches into the flats.
Each flat has two bedrooms, a kitchen, a laundry, a bathroom with shower, bath and toilet. Each unit also has a small balcony. Although it is not policy, if you live on the bottom floor of the flats you may be able to extend your patio out a little with plants or make shift fences.
Gove Online has produced a video of the flats and published it on Youtube. Click the play button to view it.
Below is a layout of the Town flats. Some flats will be a mirror image of this, however the layout is essentially exactly the same.
