Bourke.

Bourke is an opportunity to experience medical practice at the frontier.  The gateway to the Australian outback, it is home to a large population of Aboriginal Australians - the oldest continuous culture on earth. 

Bourke will provide you with the opportunity to demonstrate and perfect your medical skills, while joining one of the most welcoming and supportive communities in the country.

Gundabooka National Park outside Bourke in outback NSW is home to the imposing Mount Gunderbooka and Aboriginal rock art.

It is vast area rich in Aboriginal and European heritage that stretches from the banks of the Darling River, across the plains and over Mount Gunderbooka.

The Park is of great significance to the local Ngemba Aboriginal people.

In Bourke your dollar goes a lot further, giving you greater flexibility to continue your education, send your children to the top schools and universities, and take regular holidays.

Bourke is a high demand market for health and medical services. This means that doctors can earn as much, if not more, income compared to highly competitive and over-supplied city locations.

But it is a low-cost market for housing, with the median price around $164,000 compared to a median price in Sydney of $1.2 million.  This grand house (opposite) recently sold for just $230K.  Highly paid doctors have the option to live in some of the most prestigious housing in town at an affordable price.

Talking about great holidays ...

 

Feel like getting away for the weekend, or attend a conference?  Bourke has you covered!

Bourke has regular flights to Dubbo Regional Airport  which allows you to transfer to flights to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Newcastle.

From Sydney you can head to holiday at Bondi Beach, or fly to Newcastle and experience the pristine beaches of the mid-North Coast.  Fly to Brisbane and head to the Gold Coast, or enjoy international shopping in Melbourne. 

Bourke gives you the challenge of frontier practice with the convenience of accessing Australia's cosmopolitan centres.
