If you are looking for the perfect work/life balance, then the Mallacoota Doctor Search committee is looking for you!

Mallacoota, in the heart of Victoria’s pristine Croajingalong National Park, East Gippsland, seeks a suitably qualified doctor. If you are looking for that elusive work/life balance and the professional rewards of working in a remote community, you may be the doctor for us!

Mallacoota Doctor Search invites you to consider joining our medical practice. Our vibrant resort town whose population of 1,000 residents swells to 5,000+ with visitors over summer and Easter, is famous for its fishing, boating, beaching, golfing, bushwalking, bird-watching, and of course, it’s whale watching from the beach!

The community and GP Dr. Sara Renwick-Lau is looking for another doctor to join our hard-working team. In her spare time, Dr. Renwick-Lau enjoys surfing and horse riding. Maybe you prefer time in the great outdoors, participating in the arts or pumping iron in the exercise classes.

There's a thriving local arts scene, a wide range of social and sporting clubs including everything from surfing and golfing to book clubs and regular music jam nights; artisan markets, a new contemporary art gallery, music performance spaces, a local radio station and much more.

Town amenities and facilities include a Prep to Year 12 College, two supermarkets, the usual retail outlets, a library, cafes, a non-commercial airstrip, an ocean access boat ramp and access to the lake system via two boat ramps with wharves

Although we're in Victoria's spectacular wilderness coast, we're also close to larger town centres including NSW towns of Eden, Pambula, Bega and Merimbula (which has a commercial airport and daily flights via Rex Airlines), and Bairnsdale in east Gippsland. Canberra and the snowfields are only a four-hour drive away.

Our well-supported mixed-billing medical practice includes an experienced administrative team, a trained nurse and a psychologist. It enjoys a close working relationship with the town's MICA paramedic, pharmacy and allied health professionals from the community health centre.

We ideally want a doctor who would relish the opportunity to become part of our small community, actively involved in developing healthy lifestyles for everyone from babies through to the elderly.

You might be a busy city-based doctor who wants to transition to a slower-paced lifestyle; you might have a young family that you'd like to raise in a small, supportive and close-knit country environment; you might be an adventurer who loves to explore the great outdoors—or all of the above!

We are looking for a doctor with Australian general practice experience. You will be offered:

  • A generous percentage of billings (negotiable)
  • Flexible number of sessions per week
  • Access to Mallacoota-based funded GP training towards Fellowship with the RVTS, to eligible doctors.
