Resident Medical Officers – Western Australia
Interested in working in country Western Australia?
Western Australia (WA) has more hours of sunshine than any other Australian state, with blue skies for most of the year. The weather ranges across the state from a semi-arid interior to a tropical north, while the southern half enjoys a Mediterranean-style climate. Enjoy an active lifestyle in the country with a wide array of water and land-based sports, camping and fishing destinations and beautiful scenic beaches with pure white sand and crystal-clear turquoise water perfect for swimming and snorkelling. The sun sets on the west and if you’ve never seen a sunset over the ocean, WA will take your breath away. Not to mention that there are a lot less crowds and development compared to eastern coast beaches. WA produces a wide array of world-class produce, including seafood, cheese and an emerging trade in black truffles. The State is home to nine wine regions, including world-renown vineyards in the SouthWest and Great Southern regions. WA is a year-round working holiday destination!
