Melbourne and Victoria

Beach-Huts-300x225Melbourne and Victoria

A cooler more temperate climate makes Melbourne seem closer to home (the UK) than other cities. It has seen fairly rapid growth in the past few years, with lots of families moving into the suburbs. Melbourne is very cosmopolitan city with a wide mix of peoples from around the world. There are plenty of sports facilities around the city and it is a world class centre for culture and entertainment. The beaches are close by and skiing is available in the winter – about 3hrs drive to the north east.

Once outside of Melbourne, Victoria is a rural state with agriculture and tourism as the main industries.

Melbourne has been a popular place for UK GPs over the years and it is now increasingly hard to find GP vacancies within easy striking distance of the CBD (Central Business District). There are a few vacancies further afield and cities like Ballarat (1hr 30 mins north west of Melbourne) and Wodonga (3 hrs north east, on the NSW border) are good alternatives if nothing in Melbourne itself suits.

The service I received from both Paul in the UK and from Monique and Martina in Australia was excellent. Initially I mainly was in contact with Paul whilst I was getting organised with registration which he helped with. He was extremely patient in answering all my questions. When I first arrived in Newcastle I was really pleased that Martina came to meet me there whilst she was visiting New South Wales (despite being based in Melbourne) and took me to my practice to meet everyone. I found this particularly helpful as I moved out here on my own knowing no-one so I was grateful to meet a friendly face. I’ve been here 5 months now and its definitely been one of the best things I’ve ever done.
