Discover the secrets of Rosebery
Rosebery is a small mining town located on the northern end of the West Coast Range, nestled in a secluded valley beneath the imposing Mount Black, amidst dense and beautiful Tasmanian forest land. Visitors in Rosebery can view the local mining history in the old aerial bucket ropeway that hangs over the outskirts of town, and the Rosebery Heritage Centre.
Rosebery is ideal for those who seek the solitude of a rugged outdoorsy lifestyle, nestled deep in a valley with plenty of unique nearby activities to be enjoyed. Test your luck and try a spot of fishing in the Pieman River or play a round on Australia's steepest golf course.
Montezuma Falls are a popular attraction in the area; 5km south of the town, the falls pour spectacularly over a 104m rock face, making them one of Tasmania’s highest waterfalls.
Further, towards to coast you can stop by the town of Zeehan where there is a spray tunnel walking track and mineral souvenir shop or head out towards the tourist town of Strahan and discover some of the most unique Tasmanian experiences available such as stunning boat cruises and wilderness train tours.
What does being a GP locum in Rosebery typically look like?
You'll be working in the medical centre Monday to Friday (with some days spent at the satellite clinic in Zeehan). On-call for emergencies at the small hospital is typically on a shared roster of 1:2. Out-of-hours call-outs are typically rare and you will be supported by fantastic nursing staff. Rosebery has no inpatients as they are cared for in nearby Queenstown.
We have opportunities for GPs who enjoy working solely in the clinic as well as GP VMO locum jobs for those who wish to leverage their advanced ED skills in the local hospital.
- You must be a vocationally registered GP (FRACGP or FACRRM)
- For GP / ED Locums, you will need recent rural emergency experience and a current ALS2 (or equivalent) certificate.
For more information about locum work at Rosebery, please get in touch with Phil Dixon on 0424 550 378 or register.
I would encourage GPs to try locuming at any Ochre Medical Centre including Rosebery. They are high-quality and safe practices to work in and the communities are just excellent.
