our services, accommodation


Victoria Daly Regional Council has accommodation facilities available in Kalkarindji, Nauiyu and Yarralin only. Our accommodation facilities are located in remote areas and are required to accommodate a wide range of internal and external guests. Providing suitable accommodation for Council, Government and other visitors to small communities is often a challenge in towns with acute housing shortages and minimal accommodation options. VDRC accommodation facilities does not follow the typical model and in many areas, widely differs from services being offered by standard accommodation providers.
