These are just a few of the things that make Australiasian cities some of the best locations to take a permanent healthcare job. We are going to share our top 5 Australasian locations for you to look at when considering a permanent healthcare role.


Spending most of the year in full sunshine, Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, is an ideal location for a healthcare job. A thriving local culture makes Sydney an exciting place to be, especially when you consider they see their average summer temperatures 25-25°C. Sydney is an expensive place to live, but the wages are so high that it becomes a much more affordable city than many in the UK.


Often compared to Sydney, Melbourne is titled the world’s ‘most liveable city’. This comes down to a number of reasons; including impressive public transport, low crime rates and an amazing arts and culture scene. What’s more, Melbourne boasts an impressive summer. Not quite as hot as Sydney, but enough to bring you outdoors to one of their incredible festivals or parades.

North Queensland

Famous for the Great Barrier Reef, their rainforests and 36 National Parks, North Queensland is the ideal location to take a permanent healthcare job if you enjoy a bit of adventure in your life. With some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, an incredible arts and culture scene and a whole host of adrenaline fuelled activities, it’s no wonder North Queensland is named Australia’s adventure capital.


Perth, the seventh most liveable city in the world, is very well known for having a Mediterranean climate and 139 days of sun every year. A thriving nightlife, wonderful beaches and more walks than you can list are just some of the many incredible things about Perth. If you’re a healthcare professional looking for a permanent role in Australia, Perth may be the place for you.
