Although we are visiting Gove for a site visit(Rio Tinto) next month but any information before our visit will really be appreciated even regarding accomdation.

Look forward to hear from you



Hi Ritu - you will love Gove... we do!!

Heaps of stuff kids  - sports (soccer, AFL, rugby, swimming, Nippers surf club, dancing, tennis, netball, fishing, tai kwan do and karate, golf etc) as well as scouts, youth group/kids club, playgroups, ... the list goes on...

There is plenty for adults too  - same as per kids plus Theatre Arts group,Lawn Bowls, Squash, Jazzercise, Yoga, Astonomy club, Golf Club, Yacht club ... and heaps more.

The best part is that is only takes 5 - 10 minutes or less to get to any of these...

It is a friendly town with great weather, beautiful beaches - many people here enjoy fishing and camping too.

There is wonderful arts and culture with the local Yolgnu people too.
