From colonial streetscapes to antique shops, and right back up to bespoke cafes, Braidwood is a town brimming with things to see and do.  

Situated a short drive from our nation's capital Canberra, and not too far from beautiful Batemans Bay, Braidwood is nestled close to the Monga National Park, which stretches from Braidwood towards the south coast of NSW.


Living in Braidwood provides doctors and health professionals with access to world-leading NSW public school education system at Braidwood Central School which caters to students from Kindergarten to Year 12.

There is also the option of sending their children to board during the week or for the term at the prestigious Frensham Boarding School, or Snowy Mountains Grammar School providing a pathway to some of the world's leading universities located in Australia.

Braidwood is around three hours’ drive southwest of Sydney and just over an hour from Canberra.


The current population is around 1700. Braidwood is a service town for the surrounding district which is based on sheep and cattle grazing, and forestry operations.

From bushwalking and birdwatching to dining out and gallery hopping, Braidwood is a popular place for adventure. This historic gold mining town is also close to the beautiful ancient rainforest walk along the Penance Grove Track.

Truffle hunting is a popular pastime in this beautiful NSW village area.  Visit the award-winning Terra Preta Truffle Farm and go truffle hunting with their dogs!

For artisans and enthusiasts of all things quirky, Braidwood offers an eclectic mix of things to see, do and try in its buzzing hub.

In Braidwood 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.

Braidwood 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 $447,500 compared to a median price in Sydney of $1.2 million.  This grand house (opposite) sold for just $725K in May 2019.  Highly-paid doctors have the option to live in some of the most prestigious housing in town at an affordable price.

NSW Rural Doctors Network.png

Rural and Remote Medical Services Ltd was formed by the NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN) to address the chronic shortage of doctors in rural and remote NSW.  Using the 'Easy Entry, Gracious Exit' model developed by RDN, RARMS has grown to support ten of NSW's most disadvantaged and vulnerable communities to attract and retain GPs over the last 20 years.  Now an independent charity, RARMS acknowledges the work and dedication of RDN and its officers and staff in helping to establish Australia's most successful rural and remote medical workforce solution.

Our Clinics are independently accredited by external medical experts so our communities can be confident in our care.


RARMS is a registered not-for-profit charity and every dollar we receive goes to improving the health and sustainability of rural and remote communities.

RARMS delivers more than 20,000 medical consultations every year, keeping our communities healthy and safe.

We pay our respects to all First Nation elders past, present and future from the lands where RARMS works.  RARMS  acknowledges the Awabakal people in Newcastle, the Wiradjuri, Ngemba and Kamilaroi people in Western NSW, the Hunter and New England, the Ngunnawal and Yuin people in Braidwood, and the Barkindji and Wilyakali people in far west NSW who are the traditional custodians of the land on which RARMS works.
