The Role

This is an established practice in the town of Airlie Beach in northern Queensland.

The practice is modern and has state of the art equipment, it has recently expanded and now accommodates 4 doctors who have been there long term and currently 2 registrars. They also have nursing support and a great treatment room.

The practice is open 6 days a week Monday to Saturday from 8.00am to 6.00pm.

The doctors usually work a rotating roster and mostly work a 4 day week of 9  hours (with an hour lunch break) which means they sometimes even get a four day weekend depending on how the roster falls, which is appreciated by the doctors.    Rosters can however be discussed with the practice manager. 

The practice is bulk billing and services the locals and many tourists in the area.  The doctors also look  after the many islands off Airlie consulting with the nurses on the island when required.

To be considered for this position you must have either VR or General Registration in Australia or have MRCGP/MICGP/ FRACGP or equivalent.

The Location

Airlie Beach is around 700 miles north of Brisbane – there is a domestic airport just 30 minutes away connecting you to Brisbane in just 1hr and 30 minutes.

The coastal village of Airlie Beach is a vibrant town filled with palm-fringed beaches, waterfront parks and alfresco dining restaurants. You are sure to instantly warm to its bohemian charm and carefree and relaxed attitude. Airlie Beach is also the gateway to the Whitsundays, the 74 pristine islands in the north of Queensland's Great Barrier Reef where you can visit luxurious island resorts and sip cocktails by the pool, bask in the sun or relax in a spa. Queensland's warm, tropical climate means that winters at Airlie Beach are very mild and perfect for enjoying water activities all year round.
