The Position
As an experienced Consultant Psychiatrist, your primary clinical work will be provided within the local communities, with inpatient care available in collaboration with the mental health adult inpatient units and health service clinical departments.

The Location
Located at the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef with access to coral islands and scuba diving, this is a great place for getting close to nature and to relax, swim, snorkel or dive. Just 15kms out of the city lays a beach famous for having the largest concentration of nesting marine turtles on the eastern Australian mainland.

With a population of more than 90,000 people, this regional town is large enough to provide cosmopolitan living, yet relaxed enough to allow for ample family and leisure time.
