What our nurses say about their adventures


The possibilities are endless. I have been chasing waterfalls in Litchfield, swimming in hot springs, having beers under twinkling lights enjoying water views and a few nights on Mitchell St. I’ve made new friends who are all in the same boat as me and we enjoy the balmy nights with cold drinks and live music.”

What our nurses say about facilities

Royal Darwin Theatre team has been so welcoming and made my transition fairly easy. The clinical exposure to tropical disease, trauma and patients with severe co-morbidities are part of a normal day at work. It’s incredibly interesting and I’m learning so much. You really need to be versatile and willing to learn.

What our nurses say about their adventures


“Being in Darwin you can get away from the ‘normal’ city lifestyle. Brisbane is very busy, whereas Darwin is more chilled out. I have also done some drives to Katherine and just got back from Bali! Darwin is very close to SE Asia, it was only a 2hr flight and was able to head over during my placement.”
