The location

Wodonga is strategically placed between Melbourne  (just over a 3 hour drive) and Sydney on the Hume Hwy, and a 3.5 hour drive from the Capital, Canberra.   The city's population e is more than 37,000.  Wodonga is ideally situated on the Murray River with surrounding hills, rich agricultural valleys, adjacent wineries and historic towns.  Wodonga has more than 80km of bike and walking paths providing the perfect opportunity to meander by the river or enjoy one of the scenic routes that link the city. Picturesque parks and gardens are dotted throughout the community.

The hillsides and parkland reserves provide the ideal bushwalking, bird watching and hiking tracks for the novice as well as the experienced walker. Quality restaurants, coffee shops and taverns offer wonderful food and entertainment for locals and visitors. The wine areas of Rutherglen, Beechworth, Milawa and King Valley to the south, and Tumbarumba to the north, make for a great wine lovers' experience.

Wodonga is a leader in regional health facilities and has a comprehensive range of services available to the community. There are a huge number of general practitioners and specialists in the region, with fully qualified professionals working in all fields from obstetrics to oncology and from pediatrics to psychiatry. Wodonga is also fortunate in having some of the finest sports medicine practitioners, physiotherapists and chiropractors based in the region. The city continues to enjoy significant growth, which has prompted several residential developments in the Leneva Valley and Baranduda area- this practice is the nearest medical centre to these developments.

Wodonga is well serviced with a wide range of educational facilities for its population and industry. There are privately-owned and council-managed preschools to cater for children’s early learning needs. More than 20 primary and secondary schools are located within the city including public and Catholic, Anglican and Lutheran denominations. A special development school for disabled children also operates.

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.
