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!

If I had to describe Bendigo in one word, it would be convenience. After living and working in Perth and Melbourne, I jumped at the chance to move to Bendigo. I have entered the property market comfortably and my drive to work is eight minutes! The community spirit in Bendigo is very family friendly, despite it being a large town. ”
