The Hospital
Incorporating the main facility and six community health centres, this health service has been providing quality health care since 1933 to a community stretching north of Sydney.
The hospital, a teaching hospital of the University of Sydney, provides inpatient services including coronary and intensive care, orthopaedic, general medical, surgical, obstetric, mental health, paediatric and emergency services.
The Location
As the primary retail and commercial zone, you will live in a town that boasts a fantastic mix of old and new. Wander through the Mall featuring the renowned Water Sculpture, alfresco dining and popular shopping. Or head to the west side for shopping, cafes and second hand bookstores.
Sydney, just a short train ride away is a paradise for visitors and locals alike - the city and surrounds are stunningly beautiful plus there are a large variety of attractions, events, restaurants and bars to suit any taste or budget. Roughly 3 million international visitors come to Sydney annually to see major attractions like the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and the unique harbour with its countless beaches, inlets and peninsulas.
Attractions that keep visitors and locals happy include the Royal Botanic Gardens, Australian Museum, Powerhouse Museum, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Museum of Contemporary Art and the National Maritime Museum.
