Not only will this location appeal to beach lovers and surfers, but it is close enough to the Snowy Mountains that ski lovers can spend the day on the slopes and be home on the same day.  Whale watching, bike trails and national parks are also key attractions to the outdoors.

From simple café to stylish restaurant, the choice is yours on the Sapphire Coast – the best of local bounty, straight to the plate from land and sea. The region has lots to offer food and drink lovers both eating out and shopping.  Local products are widely available at markets throughout the week. There are plenty of stores locally, recognisable from the UK so you will not need to go far for your needs.

There are 17 Primary and Secondary Schools in the area including Government, Private, Catholic and Alternative. Property in the area can start from as little as $250 per week to rent or $200,000 to buy and many have beach views.  The town has lots to offer all ages and interests. 

What Head Medical can do for you 
Arranging a position overseas is very exciting, but we understand that it can also be daunting and time consuming. We’re the UK's specialist in international medical recruitment and we‘ve helped many Doctors relocate since we first started out in 2008 (you can read what people have said about working with us on our testimonials page). We know it’s important to balance career opportunities with lifestyle and we’ll talk through your plans and will get to know you to make sure we find the right role in the right location.

Once we have secured a job for you, we’ll manage the Medical Registration and Visa application process, and support you (and your family) with the relocation itself.
