Welcome to the wide, wide west.

Western Health is the major tertiary healthcare service for metropolitan Melbourne’s western and northwestern communities – a catchment area covering well over 1,500 square kilometres and more than a million people.

G'day Melbourne.

A growing metropolis of over 5 million people, Melbourne is famous for its rich arts and culture, as well as its feverish love of sport. A culinary city, a coffee-loving city – a city filled with galleries, amazing diversity in restaurants and fast and convenient public transport.

The Melbourne Cricket Ground, home to the AFL Grand Final.The Rod Laver Arena, home to the Australian Open. St Kilda Beach, bustling all summer long. Brunswick Street, Chapel Street and Sydney Road, shopping strips kilometres long, bursting with designer fashion and locally-made goods. And only 15-20 minutes’ drive or a short train trip from all that central Melbourne has to offer, is the western corridor, covering some of the most eclectic and cool suburbs in the world (Footscray, Yarraville) the waterside attraction of Williamstown, the beaches at Altona and the beautiful and affordable, spacious new housing estates of Werribee, Point Cook and Melton. Just a few kilometres further on, you could have a semi rural property in areas such as Bacchus Marsh, Gisborne or Sunbury, with room for the kids’ pony!

There are also the bustling shopping strips home to various ethnic communities, including Vietnamese, Turkish, Greek, Italian, Ethopian, Afghan and many, many more. This is a global city with career opportunities to match.

Your new home. Your new life.

"Melbourne has been a great move. Working as a midwife provides me with the balance of caring for individual women, providing continuity of care, while having the benefits of rostered time off, six weeks annual leave and and wonderful work / life balance"
