A delightful town, Murwillumbah is on the banks of the meandering Tweed River in the green caldera, the crater of a huge extinct volcano now carpeted with rich farmlands and enchanting rainforest. Volcanic soils support dairy, sugar cane, banana plantations and hobby farms.

The seasonal produce of the Tweed region is celebrated at the Tweedie Foodie Fest and Foodie Friday Food Trail. At the weekly Murwillumbah Farmers Market you can buy a range of fresh seasonal produce, including fruit, eggs, honey, nuts and meats.

How Head Medical can help

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.
