GET AWAY FROM IT ALL, AND LIVE THE TROPICAL LIFE UP NORTH
Looking for an adventure? You’re looking in the right place! Townsville offers unparalleled access to some of Australia’s best diving, national parks and beaches. With (mostly) gorgeous weather all year round, Townsville is the perfect basecamp for adventure seekers. If you’re looking to relocate from the UK or Ireland to Australia for a nursing job, Townsville will make every day to feel like a summer holiday!
WHY CHOOSE TOWNSVILLE?
With over 300 days of sunshine a year, Townsville’s tropical climate is perfect if you love spending time outdoors and catching some rays. The cost of living provides excellent value for a coastal town with rentals and house prices well below national averages. Townsville is a gateway to Australia’s iconic Great Barrier Reef as well as tropical rainforests and national parks and with a booming dining scene, you’re weekends just got even sweeter!
The downside, while Townsville’s climate is usually warm and sunny, the wet season can bring large volumes of rain. Townsville can also feel isolated from other major cities, but with so much nearby to explore and rail connections to Brisbane and Cairns, you’ll have plenty of options available to you.
Nursing staff are in high demand in Townsville and Far North Queensland so if you are qualified with at least two years’ experience we can help get work asap! Our team can let you know more about this region and how you can get started. Our nurses tell us that it’s more relaxing working in Australia. The hours are kinder with 8 hour shifts being the norm, lower staff to patient ratios (1:4-6) and better pay.
If you choose Townsville as your first home in Australia, you’ll be able to post some of these gems to your Instagram and make your friends and family back home jealous (who knows, this might get them planning a holiday to come and visit you sooner than you think).
