  • Excellent salary package, up to $500,000 dependent upon experience)
  • Range of affordable accommodation, in the city, in the country, or near the beach.

The Role
You will be a senior member of the anaesthetic team and will have an active input in the management of patients in the High Dependency Unit, Emergency Department and across all hospital areas when called upon to do so.

The Location
Mount Gambier lays halfway between Adelaide and Melbourne, but that’s not the only reason it’s perfectly centred. Mount Gambier strikes the ideal balance between the vibrant lifestyle of a big city and comforts of a small town, between cultural progress and tradition, and between modern conveniences and the preservation of natural beauty – be it the iconic blue lake, or the many caves, sinkholes and parks.

It is located 270 miles from both Adelaide and Melbourne, so each is a short 1hr10minute direct flight, or an easy drive.

There is a wide range of cuisines on offer and real baristas. Several farmers and craft markets operate regularly throughout the South East while there are also premium wine growing regions nearby.

It is excellent in terms of outdoor opportunities with plenty of land, sea and sky options - caving, sinkhole diving, surfing, sailing, fishing, archery, shooting, horse riding, walking trails, to name a few.
