Where you'll be working


“A healthy community through quality care”

 

Northern NSW Local Health District is located in north eastern NSW, extending from Grafton in the south, to Tweed Heads on the Queensland border, and west to Tabulam and Urbenville.  We offer a diverse range of landscapes and lifestyles, from world-heritage listed mountain ranges, to world-renowned surfing breaks, and everything in between. 

 

Our people live in some of Australia’s most vibrant regional centres, with first class infrastructure, unspoilt natural wonders, pristine coastlines, and a thriving arts scene. It’s a fast-growing region with rewarding careers and adventures to be found among the large cities, regional towns and relaxed rural villages. 

 
Life in the Clarence Valley…. 
 

Tired of commuting? Looking for a change of scenery, or a smaller community to raise your family?

 

When life speeds up and becomes more complicated we yearn for simple things, like time, a sense of connection, stability, belonging to a community.

 

Whether you’re looking for a relaxing tree-change, a family destination or an adventure, the Clarence Valley has something to suit every lifestyle.

 

We do it differently up here – you might call us ‘rough around the edges’, but it’s more about being down to earth and everyone loves it that way. 

 

If you’re thinking about relocating, maybe we’re just what you need.
