“Mildura is very accessible because it has an airport that has flights to Melbourne, busses that are on time, and also a taxi service that is really good. Weather is nice if you hate rain.

If you are a foodie, Mildura can offer you a lot of options. From Asian influence takeaways to Italian restaurants, the choice is varied. Notable mentions are Big Lizzy Pizza and 48 flavours of gelato.”

What our nurse say about their adventures

“My placement grew into 18 months of being part of an incredible family. From the ICU team to each and every member of the staff, Wimmera Base Hospital has become my second home.

I have been fortunate, together with my husband Kevin, to fit in a lot of hiking, races, camping and sightseeing. Horsham is a big country town with a great feel and a lot of heart. It’s a community that works, plays and sticks together.”
