Other benefits of Darwin include:

  • Top private schools.
  • Strong multi-cultural ethos.
  • Gate way to adventure for families, singles and couples.

There is an 18 bed general rehab ward. Indigenous people make up approx. half of inpatients so this is a interesting opportunity to work in indigenous health and culture, and also Outreach clinics. These clinics cover prosthetics/orthotics, chronic pain and brain injury.
