    Sale is in the "Middle of Everywhere" (link to themiddleofeverywhere .com.au).  

    It is the gateway to a number of attractions along the southern part of Ninety Mile Beach.  The small towns of Seaspray and Golden Beach directly front the pristine coastline, while Loch Sport is situated on a peninsula wedged between Lake Victoria and the ocean of Bass Strait.  The snowy mountain of Hotham is within three hours drive of Sale and is a great place for everyone to get out and enjoy the snow; whether its learning to ski or snowboard, snow tube, cross country ski, showshoe, toboggan or build a snowman.  

    The Community Fellow position is an excellent opportunity to learn and fine tune the nuances of developmental and behavioural paediatrics.  The position caters for either a trainee in the Advanced program who would like a degree of autonomy, or a junior trainee who requires additional support.  We also provide an outreach indigenous clinic and a community clinic to East Gippsland that provide excellent opporuntities for an Advanced Trainee.
