Riverland South Australia Location Report

QUINTESSENTIAL Riverland

Riverland South Australia, have you considered visiting here? The relaxed lifestyle, tranquil Murray River and excellent food and wine scene makes it a fantastic place to visit and work.

Captain a five-star houseboat or let someone else do the hard work on a paddle steamer cruise. Fish from the banks of the Murray River or paddle a kayak on the water. The Riverland is South Australia’s largest fruit-producing region so you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to fresh fruit and other produce. Enjoy the sunshine, water sports and a laid-back lifestyle.
— SouthAustralia.com

There is so much to do and see in the Riverland and Berri areas. A great place to start is here: 

Discover the Murray River National Park, see the 'Big Orange', enjoy the Riverland Wine & Food Festival or plan a houseboat adventure!

The name Berri derives from the Aboriginal term berri berri, meaning ‘big bend in the river’, and it was once a busy refuelling stop for wood-burning paddle steamers. These days Berri is an affluent regional hub for both state government and agricultural casual-labour agencies. The ‘Big Orange’ – one of Australia’s iconic ‘big’ roadside tourist lures – awaits resuscitation on the edge of town.
— Lonely Planet

HOW TO GET THERE

  • Fly to Adelaide or Mildura and drive to Berri.

  • Daily bus service from Adelaide (about 3.5 hours).

Mildura - Location Report

WHAT 

WHERE

MILDURA

QUINTESSENTIAL MILDURA

LINKEDIN FRIENDLY IMAGES.png
Sunny, sultry Mildura is something of an oasis amid some really dry country, a modern town with its roots firmly in the grand old pastoralist era. Its other calling cards include art deco buildings and some of the best dining in provincial Victoria. The hinterland, too, is worth exploring, from the nearby wilderness national parks to Murray River activities that include fishing, swimming, canoeing, waterskiing, houseboating, taking a paddle-steamer cruise or playing on riverside golf courses. The weather up here is very much blue sky – you can expect warm, sunny days even in midwinter.

WINERIES

Discover local wines at welcoming cellar doors around the Mildura region. Meet the winemakers and hear about how they make their wines using state of the art techniques and equipment or traditional practices.

Kiwi Radiologists - Meet Nicola Speer

Prescript9388  crop square .jpg

Nicola Speer is a medical recruitment specialist (and a Kiwi!) focusing on helping Radiologists find locum and permanent positions.  Here Nicola answers some questions to help Kiwi Radiologists thinking of working in an Australian locum position.

Where in NZ are you from?

 

I’m from the Nelson region, right at the top of the South Island. It’s a location known for its sunny climate, beautiful beaches and good agriculture including its vineyards and great wines being produced.

When did you move to Australia and why?

 

I moved from the UK back to NZ briefly and then to Sydney to live. I’ve been here over 15 years now and love the lifestyle here – as well as the ease of being able to get back to New Zealand frequently to see family and friends. My initial reason for coming here was for work, then it quickly became home for me

What’s your favourite place in Australia?

 

It’s hard to say since there is so much to love about Australia – I live in Bondi Beach so that has to be my number 1 – I feel grateful everyday for being able to get out to the beach early in the mornings, winter and summer, and enjoy the village-like community here. Outside Sydney, Melbourne is my favourite for a weekend away, the culture, food and ease of moving around in the city make it a great place to spend some time. I’m keen to explore regional Victoria more too. Adelaide and Hobart are also favourite weekends away. In the middle of our already mild winter, it is nice to get away to Queensland for some sunshine, swimming in the ocean and exploring – Port Douglas and Cape Tribulation are beautiful.

How can you help NZ based Radiologists?

 

One of my favourite aspects of helping NZ radiologists into locums over here in Australia, is the connection I have with New Zealanders and a bit of understanding in terms of the questions that they would like to have answered, how best to set things up for locum work that is going to be a truly enjoyable experience for the doctor, and their family if they’re coming too – which is a great option, to take a trip that mixes work, with some family time in a great Australian location.

What are the most common types of questions NZ Radiologists have about working in Australia?

 

Sometimes NZ radiologists ask what is required for registration and paperwork and are generally quite relieved at how much Prescript can do to make it a smooth and simple process. 

I think there’s often an initial feeling of not knowing what the options are, where to start, how much they can earn and the practicalities of the process. I love to tailor locums for NZ radiologists that cater to their time capacity and availability and also the personal preferences for locations. If I talk to a doctor who isn’t sure, then I like to go over a few ideas to see which places sound the most appealing to each individual.

How much can a Radiologist earn for a locum position?

 

It can vary on location and length of commitment, but generally it is a daily rate of $3000 to $4000 per day (+GST).  

Prescript - Darlinghurst27204  crop long .jpg
Are there other benefits?

Plenty! It’s a pretty stress-free experience with flights, well selected accommodation, a car and some other personal touches provided that show appreciation to radiologists and ensure a smooth process.

Can a family come too?

 

Yes, absolutely and this is something that I like to discuss with radiologists in our initial chats to ensure I understand and can think about good ideas to suit the preferences of the whole family: ages of children, what activities they like and interests the family have, any factors that require special planning and basics like the type of accommodation that will make the stay during their locum most comfortable.

What is the best way for a doctor to contact you?

There are three ways to get in touch:

  1. Call me on 0405 429 799
  2. Email nicola@prescript.com.au
  3. Click ‘Book A Call with Nicola' ⬇️(with option to upload your CV)

 

The best way is to send me a brief overview of any existing ideas about coming to Australia for locums. If the radiologist just wants to find out what the options are and knows nothing about where to start – that’s perfect too! I’ll be able to reply and schedule in a phone call to suit us both so that we can have a chat about options, answer questions and look at how best to proceed from there. 

New Zealand radiologists are perfectly placed to come over to Australia and work. We partner with really appreciative and accommodating radiology practices, hospitals and imaging services and look after our Kiwi doctors coming in to work, whether it’s for a week, a fortnight, a few weeks dotted through the year or even a block of months, get in touch and we can have that first conversation.
