Murdoch University provides a wonderful opportunity to experience an Australia, little known to international students and travelers. Students can enjoy the café strip in Fremantle or explore the natural environment; from the sparkling, pristine beaches of the South, to the rugged and remote ‘outback’ of the Kimberley’s in the far North. The university also organizes an adventurous, fun filled 10-day camping expedition in remote Western Australia.
The University is located approximately 20 minutes by car (nine miles) from Perth’s city center and 10 minutes by car (five miles) from the port city of Fremantle.
