Bendigo Map

Central Victoria - with its imposing boom-time architecture, thriving wine culture and cosmopolitan vibe - is one of Australia's fastest growing inland regions, thanks to a strong, diversified economy, affordable housing and enviable lifestyle.

The region's established medical fraternity enjoys first-class facilities, stimulating case loads and fast-growing practices - and most doctors manage to get home before it's dark. For a busy medical practitioner frustrated by the daily grind of a hectic metro lifestyle, practicing in beautiful Central Victoria makes perfect sense. Come for the work, stay for the lifestyle!


Dr John Edington
Country people are fabulous, we’ve been made very welcome and settled in so easily. I have loved the life and the job from the first day we arrived and found life here to be professionally very rewarding and personally very gratifying. I’ve always loved a challenge – moving to Bendigo was a challenge at the time, but has probably been the best thing we’ve ever done.”
