Our location

Queensland is one of the most naturally beautiful places in the world. Clean air, one of the world’s longest coastlines in a single state and natural wonders everywhere you go. Queensland is Australia’s second largest state by area and third most populous. Both a commercial and mining powerhouse and a tourism mecca, Queensland has something for everyone, including thousands of square kilometres of unspoiled wonder.

Whilst Brisbane is shaping itself as a vibrant hub and world leader in attracting industry sectors that are globally scalable in the new world economy, medical officers will be staffed across the state including Toowoomba, Roma, Sunshine Coast, Townsville, Rockhampton, Mackay and Cairns. All bases offer their own unique educational opportunities and upskilling for our recruits. Many of them enjoy working across bases, experiencing a little bit of everything this amazing state has to offer.
