The location

Situated on the heart of the Darling Downs, Dalby is just over 200 km North West of Brisbane and an hour’s drive from Toowoomba. The Gold and Sunshine Coasts are easily reachable for those weekend trips (no weekend work here!).

The Dalby region is a happy rural community with a town population of approximately 12,000 with a further 5,000 residing in the local district. The region has varied economic streams including power, livestock, agriculture and manufacturing. 

Dalby and the surrounding Western Downs Shire is at the centre of rich coal and natural gas reserves which underpin the power generation industry for south east QLD. The region is known as a rich agricultural area, growing crops such as cotton, wheat, barley, sunflowers, chickpeas, corn and mung beans. Diversification into the fish, hemp and native flower markets has occurred in recent times.

The town has excellent educational options available with a variety of choices from pre-school to year 12.

Many lifestyle and sporting activities are available in the area. Local clubs include football of various codes, cricket, bowls, swimming, netball and touch football. There’s also a great golf course and tennis club. 

Essential Criteria

You must be an experienced GP with a passion for improving the health and quality of life of country communities. A particular interest in chronic disease management would be highly regarded, as would previous experience in rural or indigenous communities. You should be a VR GP or an experienced non-VR GP working towards Fellowship of either RACGP or ACRRM. Supervision is not available so you should have current General or Specialist registration with AHPRA.
