Welcome to Heart of Australia. It’s a program that embodies the most innovative approach to front-line specialist medical service delivery in generations, specifically aiming to help Australians whose lives are threatened by this nation’s vast distances.
Heart of Australia delivers fortnightly specialist medical investigation and treatment clinics to regional, rural and remote area communities across Queensland, including Dalby, Goondiwindi, Stanthorpe, St George, Charleville, Roma, Emerald, Barcaldine, Longreach, Hughenden, Charters Towers and Moranbah.
Our customized road train – a specialist medical clinic-on-wheels – has travelled more than 150,000km on the road covering an area of more than 450,000 square kilometres.
Heart of Australia is breaking the grip of distance that denies rural and remote-area Australians access to services when and where they are needed most.
Heart of Australia offers educational and employment opportunities to the communities we service.
This includes training doctors and allied health professionals, offering work experience and professional development scholarships, and hiring staff locally wherever possible.
