The Hospital

The WA Country Health Service (WACHS) is the largest country health system in Australia and one of the biggest in the world, providing health services to over half a million people, including over 50,000 Aboriginal people, over a vast two and a half million square kilometres area. The Albany Health Campus is the major medical centre for the region and is a Regional Resource Centre under the WA Health Clinical Services Framework.

The Location

The south coast of Western Australia is widely regarded as one of the most incredibly beautiful and diverse coastlines in the world. From Bremer Bay, where you can charter a boat to take you out to see the Southern Ocean Orcas, to the city of Albany, the heart of the Great Southern region. The region boasts beaches which are routinely named among the best in Australia, such as the incredible Little Beach, the aptly-named Elephant Rocks in Denmark and of course our iconic Middleton Beach, just minutes from Albany’s CBD.
