A new look for Karawa training restaurant 


CDU’s own Karawa training restaurants' new look and great food guarantee an enjoyable nights' dining.

The restaurant recently underwent refurbishment which included the widening of the bar top, new carpet, colour scheme, PA system and a climatised wine storage fridge. The refurbishments have given the restaurant a ‘new lease of life’.

Karawa, the Larrakia word for ‘water’, refers to the lake that is one of the main features of the Palmerston Campus.

The restaurant is open to staff, students and the general public and provides three course meals and a range of Australian and international wines.

Situated a short distance from the Palmerston city centre, the restaurant provides in-situ training for the University’s tourism and hospitality students.

The students come from a diverse range of backgrounds, including high school students and graduates, Indigenous students, international participants and people with postgraduate backgrounds.

The students range from those looking at commencing new careers, while others are looking at changing careers and branching into something completely different.

The courses offered include certificates I, II and III in Food and Beverage, as well as certificate IV and diploma students who focus on training as trainee supervisors and managers. The restaurant’s meals are prepared by the students studying commercial and Asian cookery at certificate levels II and III.

Karawa opens on alternating nights during semester serving a choice of menus including Buffet, A la Carte and Indian.
