Where Are We?

“Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.”
Steven Wright

Global Village enjoys a pleasant riverside setting, yet is only a two minutes drive from the centre of town and a two minutes drive also to our rugged west coast beach, famous for spectacular sunsets and green stone hunting.

A supermarket is conveniently located 400m away, 200m to Aquatic Centre, and a two minutes walk to the iconic West Coast pub – the famous Monteith’s Brewery – 400m down the road.
