Rosebery – GP VMO

The Opportunity

We are looking for an experienced doctor to provide GP/VMO services to the rural mining community of Rosebery on Tasmania’s stunning West Coast.

Our Medical Centre is a well equipped and purpose built practice facility, built on the grounds of the local hospital facilities. The Health Centre co-ordinates the delivery of services such as community nursing, an accident and emergency service, a visiting diabetic clinic, needle exchange program and other support programs.

Working alongside a highly experienced GP/VMO, you will also have an opportunity to supplement your income through providing on-call services to the hospital on a 1:2 schedule.

The Location

Tasmania’s West Coast is a world apart – a string of vibrant and close-knit communities, connected by roads that wind between rugged peaks and valleys,  surrounded on all sides by unique Gondwanan cool temperate rainforest.

Rosebery is an active mining town nestled deep within the stunning West Coast Range, on the slopes of Mount Black. The town was founded in 1893 when prospector Tom McDonald discovered gold in the area, and the main mine has been in operation since the 1930s, producing zinc, lead, copper, silver, and gold, and continuously supporting the town’s economy. Well known for its beautiful and secluded atmosphere, Rosebery boasts a number of attractions, including Australia’s steepest golf course and Tasmania’s tallest waterfall (Montezuma Falls, 113m high).

There are several more challenging walking tracks throughout the rugged peaks of Mount Black, Mount Read, Mount Farrell and Mount Murchison; these volcanic mountains surrounding Rosebery are covered in lush green rainforest, and offer spectacular views of the entire area. Lake Pieman and Lake Rosebery are popular local haunts with locals and travellers alike, providing a great spot to go camping, picnicking, or trout fishing. Aside from its scenic allure, Rosebery also has a selection of shops, cafes, pubs, and a swimming pool.
