Why work as a GP or doctor in Mackay

As a doctor the world is your oyster when it comes to the direction of your career. While Mackay doctor jobs are on the rise, what can this city offer?

Positioned ten hours north of Brisbane, Mackay is famous for its history as one of Australia’s largest sugarcane farming regions. While the mining industry has become the mainstay of the local economy and rapidly overtaken other traditional agricultural industries, it’s actually the healthcare sector that is also one of Mackay’s fastest growing employers for the area. 

Like tourism, the marine industry in Mackay is small but has a lot of potential. Mackay is well situated to become a major service centre for the marine industry, being in immediate proximity to the aquatic playground of the Whitsundays Islands, and located halfway between Brisbane and Cairns.

While Mackay is ideally positioned well as a stopover point for vessels travelling up or down the Queensland coastline, the same can actually also be said for those on the road. Two of Queensland’s most important highways, the A1 (Bruce Highway), and highway 70 (Peak Downs Highway), pass directly through Mackay. The A1 connects the city to Townsville, Proserpine and Cairns in the north, and Rockhampton and Brisbane in the south. 

In comparison, the Peak Downs Highway connects the city to some of the state’s biggest mining hubs, such as Moranbah, Clermont and Emerald in the south-west. In September 2020, the city was fully bypassed with users of the Bruce Highway able to use the new Mackay Ring Road, but the Mackay region is still hugely important when it comes to keeping Queensland connected. 

On a more local scale, Mackay Regional Council is also prioritising the utmost quality of life for its residents. The council has put a significant investment in sustainable infrastructure projects to build roads, as well as water and sewerage systems, that will ultimately accommodate the growing economy and increasing population of the region. Mackay has been recognised as one of Queensland’s fastest growing economies, and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down anytime soon.
