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 Richard Dickinson
My former life in Sydney was frenetic. It was predominately work and there was very little time for my wife and children; in fact, I thought my children only wore pyjamas as it was all I ever seemed to see them wearing! Moving to Bendigo has been rewarding, both personally and professionally. The CVMRT is here to ensure the transition to Central Victoria is smooth.”
