Brisbane - Location Report

Quintessential Brisbane

Here’s our guide to a day in Brisbane – full of useful information if you are there to locum or stopping over on your way to the coast

Brisbane has 2 million residents, making it the third largest city within Australia and an exciting destination to explore.  Sydney has its harbour, Melbourne its port and Brisbane has its river.  On the north bank of the river is the CBD, with its sky-scraping offices; on the ‘South Bank’ is the artistic centre of Brisbane and famous as the home of the 1988 World Expo.  We’ll show you some of our picks on these two sides of the river, plus other areas nearby like Fortitude Valley and New Farm.

AM

Start your day on the South Bank and have breakfast/brunch at Gauge.  It opened this year and has a reputation for original, quirky dishes.  Gauge has no website, but can be found at 77 Grey Street.  From there head to GOMA (Gallery of Modern Art) and see if you can spot any elephants standing on their heads.  Stop for a coffee in their ground floor café, which has views of the river and city.   Make time to enjoy the parklands on the South Bank and walk along the riverside walkway to see ‘The Wheel of Brisbane’.

MIDDAY

Book a river cruise and see the city from the water – some will even take you to a koala sanctuary!

LATE LUNCH

Back on dry-land in the CBD, walk to Queen Street Mall which is full of shops and a fantastic farmers market (perfect for lunch, but it only operates on a Wednesday).  For those looking for the most stylish shops, a visit to Queen St Plaza is a must.

Brisbane Markets

EARLY EVENING

James Street is in Fortitude Valley.  The hipster heart of Brisbane, full of creative speciality shops including fashion, health & beauty, lifestyle & design.  Wander around and see what gifts you can find to take home.  Hungry?  Try and get into Longtime Restaurant & Bar.  Incredibly busy, but it serves fantastic thai food (the chefs have cooked for the British and Thai royal families!).

NIGHTCAP

Head back to the CBD and have a cocktail in the small and intimate Laneway Bar.  As the name suggests, it is tucked away and not that easy to find!

WHERE TO STAY?

Our top picks are:

Ovolo Inchcolm - “distinctly boutique hotel of impeccable style and clandestine character”.

Spicers Balfour Hotel - “Located in the fashionable suburb of New Farm, Spicers Balfour Hotel is an award-winning boutique hotel just minutes from the Brisbane city centre. Step inside this iconic Queenslander and you'll discover a chic and stylish interior.”

Why join this company?

Reporting to the owner of the practice, you will be involved in both general reporting and procedural work each day. There is a strong MSK/MRI and general diagnostic imaging focus. 

You will be working on-site with other Radiologists. This is an excellent opportunity to collaborate plus it also creates a supportive environment for some of the more difficult cases.  

The practice is notably team focused and value driven; they strive to be a place that you would take your own loved ones when it matters most.  

The practice offers the following services: 

  • Same day reports

  • X-Ray (including OPG)

  • No reporting off central lists

  • Relocation allowance provided

  • Costs covered for Medical Indemnity, Radiation Licence and AHPRA

  • 7 weeks annual leave (6-weeks annual and 1-week conference)

  • Support from a high calibre Customer Services and Operations team

  • Fantastic staff facilities including a modern kitchen, spacious living and outside decking area to enjoy your lunch

Lifestyle Features

Star of the show is Brisbane itself, a lush, sultry metropolis with flourishing restaurant, bar and cultural scenes that attest to its coming of age. Lapping at the city’s eastern fringe is Moreton Bay, home to low-lying sandy isles that beckon with their turquoise waves, sparkling forests and passing parade of whales, turtles and dolphins
— Lonely Planet

While plenty to do around Brisbane, the practice is also conveniently located 15 minutes from Brisbane airport, just over an hour from both the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, and 20 minutes to Brisbane CBD. 

There are many desirable areas to live that are a short drive to the practice. New Farm and Clayfield, for example, are both great locations and less than a 20-minute commute.  

Lifestyle at work is important too; during your breaks, you'll have access to excellent staff facilities, including a large, modern kitchen, a comfortable lounge area and a spacious outside covered deck. There are also regular social events to help you get to know your colleagues better.

Criteria

  • You will be friendly and approachable and will have the ability to relate well to referring parties, staff members and your patients

  • An efficient and considerate team player with a 'can-do' attitude

  • FRANZCR and AHPRA Specialist Registration

  • Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident

Please Note:

  • New Zealand based radiologists with FRANZCR are encouraged to apply (we specialise in relocation for doctors).
