The Location

Darwin is closer to Asia than it is to Sydney; it's a cultural centre perched at the tip of the Australian continent, and its tropical, climate is a perfect atmosphere for wining, dining, and shopping. Darwin hosts nightclubs, a casino, theatres, restaurants, and multi-cultural markets that are internationally famous.

There is a waterfront precinct with waterfront restaurants, shops, safe swimming lagoons for all the family, outdoor cinema and harbour cruises.

If you're looking for the great outdoors, Darwin has it all: beaches, parks, springs, hiking, diving, and natural wonder in every form. Darwin has great beaches close to the city and for those times when you can’t go in the water there is plenty of popular freshwater swimming spots nearby, such as Howard Springs, Berry Springs and Manton Dam.

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.
