Where you'll be working

At Southern NSW Local Health District we are working to help our communities lead healthy lives. Our mission is that all people across our diverse societies are able to have timely access to the right healthcare in the right setting to maximise their health, wellbeing and independence.
There is an abundance of lifestyle benefits available to you in country NSW and you will be amazed at what you will have access to - and it all comes without the queues and crowds of a big city. For more information visit our website.


The rural heartland of the Sapphire Coast halfway between Melbourne and Sydney, a short drive to beautiful sandy beaches and national park wilderness. Just 3 hours to Canberra with the perfect climate to the outdoors all year round, including whale watching between June and November. The pretty valley is a beautiful base for exploring gorgeous beaches, tranquil waterways and beautiful national parks.


Forget about sitting in traffic for hours and paying for parking, live in the city you'll be minutes away from work (perhaps even close enough to walk or cycle) and even if you live on a property outside of Goulburn or in one of the neighbouring villages, it's still a much shorter trip than big city living. That's more time for family, friends and recreation. More time to live. Goulburn is 45 minutes from Canberra, 2hrs to the beach and 2hrs from Sydney.


An enviable lifestyle and affordable property, surrounded by an eclectic mix of small towns and villages. With Canberra just a 5 minute drive away, you can enjoy all the attractions of the nation’s capital along with fabulous restaurants. Connect easily and quickly with world through the Canberra International Airport, with the beach and ski fields just 2 hours away.
