About Mount Gambier

Mount Gambier is the largest regional city in South Australia with a population of 23,000. It is located on the Princes Highway between Adelaide and Melbourne, just within the South Australian border.

The streets and houses of Mount Gambier are built around the slopes of an extinct volcano 27.37 kilometres from the sea, with the city climbing almost to the lip of the famous Blue Lake, and the outskirts extending on to the rich volcanic soil of the surrounding plain.

Due to the plentiful supply of underground water complimented by good rainfall, fertile soil, temperate climate and flat land suitable for primary industry, agriculture contributes significantly to Mount Gambier’s economy.

Flinders University supports students undertaking rural work-integrated learning placements through the provision of accommodation services. Flinders managed accommodation is available in a number of towns within rural South Australia, Northern Territory and western Victoria.

For Flinders managed properties, you can use the online booking system to check the availability of accommodation in the area you will be visiting. Some houses are tenanted by students on long-term placements and may not have any available rooms.

The accommodation is of a high standard and is low cost with lodgings predominantly situated close to the main hospital and associated health services of each town.

Accommodation typically comprises individual bedrooms with shared kitchen, living room, laundry and bathroom facilities. Where available, students also have access to a communal study area or Student Learning Centre.

Where there is no accommodation listed or available in the location of your placement, email rhsa.property@flinders.edu.au (SA and Hamilton, Victoria) or fnt.placements@flinders.edu.au (NT) to enquire about what other options may be available.

To book accommodation, first login or create an account, then add a placement before proceeding to add accommodation for that placement.
