The Position

With a population of 1,300, Geeveston is one of four townships in the Huon Valley, Australia’s southernmost municipal area. The Huon Valley is a vibrant, semi-rural community and just one hour from Hobart.

The region is a popular retreat for those seeking an alternative lifestyle. It is dominated by waterways and forested hills and is well known for an excellent range of gourmet produce that has helped Tasmania earn its reputation as a food lover’s paradise. Food and music festivals aside, the waters of the Huon River and D’Entrecasteaux Channel offer world class fishing, sailing, diving and rowing experiences, and the Valley’s population swells in the warmer months with an influx of visitors. For those of you who may be wondering, Geeveston is the setting for the fictional Rosehaven television series.

Open from Monday to Friday 8.00 am to 6.00 pm, there are two doctors working four days each and administration staff.

Visiting services include an exercise physiologist, psychologist, mental health services, dietitian, diabetes educator, podiatrist and audiologist.
