At our West Park apartments, you can find yourself living steps away from our new Cradle Coast Campus. These apartments fall under the Australian Government's National Rental Affordability Scheme. This gives you access to the best of Burnie on a student's budget.
Our apartments are self-contained with their own kitchen, bathroom and study space overlooking the ocean. As you finish studying for the day, unwind on a short walk through parklands and past a waterfall, or along the beachfront where the penguins nest at dusk.
