What kind of locations does Ochre Recruitment offer doctor positions in?
Escape the crowded city life for a taste of the peaceful life in Scottsdale in the far northeast of Tassie. The region's landscape is typified by bright, green paddocks occupied by fruit and vegetable crops, dairy cows, and flower fields, all surrounded by blue-grey mountains.
The vibrant farming community is located 1 hour from Launceston. Explore the forest reserves by foot or mountain bike, or perhaps you'd prefer to visit the local galleries and cafes on your days off. Thirty minutes north is the neighbouring coastal town of Bridport; test your golf skills on the iconic Barnbougle golf course or take a trip out to Granite Point Conservation area and watch the sun go down over Mermaids Beach.
Port Stephens NSW
Port Stephens is known for its spectacular coastline and pristine waterways, boasting 26 beaches from sheltered outlets to ocean beaches. Newcastle with all the benefits of a metropolitan city is only 45 minutes away and in less than an hour, you'll stumble upon Lake Macquarie, Barrington Tops, and the magnificent Hunter Valley. Port Stephens is an easy 2-hour drive from Sydney or 30 minutes by air.
There's always something to do in Nelson Bay. Whether you embark on a journey of discovery where dolphins and whales grace the coastline, picnic surrounded by nature reserves, take a dip in the beautiful beaches, or indulge in the fine food, wine, and cocktails from the local establishments.
The shopping district close to the marina provides a great mix of specialty shops, supermarkets, cafes, and restaurants as well as cinemas, art galleries, bowling club, and a golf club.
Lightning Ridge NSW
Lightning Ridge is a thriving opal mining town like no other. Meander down the main drag and you’ll find the street is sealed, curbed, gutted, and lined with regular shops. Attracting over 80,000 visitors a year, "The Ridge" has a number of good quality accommodation options and restaurants.
Venture out and about and you’ll come across the wildly eccentric and sometimes bizarre. There’s the house-made from bottles and the rough cement "castle" of the Astronomer's Monument; surrounded by a moonscape of mullock heaps under which literally hundreds of obsessed miners search and dig for the black opals which have made the town famous.
“The Ridge” is located 729 km northwest of Sydney via Mudgee and Dubbo and is 64 km south of the Queensland border. With a population of 2243 (22% Aboriginal) and an estimated additional 7500 people living off the grid (85% of which are Aboriginal), you’ll be exposed to a variety of presentations and have the opportunity to work with the Indigenous population
Port August SA
This rural town has a population of roughly 13,800 individuals, 15% of whom identify as Aboriginal, and 12,000 emergency visits annually. The fifth-largest city in South Australia is Port Augusta. This makes it the perfect location for tourists to visit Port Augusta's attractions as well as those in the region's surroundings, like the Flinders Mountains.
Whyalla, the region's largest city for retail shopping, is situated on the Spencer Gulf of the Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. This area is the best example of the fusion of industrial and natural experiences in South Australia, boasting a warm temperature, a reachable ocean shoreline, and saltwater fishing. Whyalla offers exploration, unusual Australian natural wonders, and a complete contrast in activities that are nature-based and industrial thanks to its colourful beauty, small-town charm, distinctive mystic outback landscapes, and year-round things to do.
Otago South Island NZ
It all happens in Otage. Central Otago is home to three of New Zealand's Great Rides, award-winning wineries, gold rush history, and dramatic landscapes. And the best part for locals is that is so easy to find work-life balance in this area.
With breathtaking landscapes, vibrant thriving communities, and plenty of space it's living at a slower southern pace. Dunedin is one hour to the south, while picturesque Central Otago is two hours away.
