    Sale 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..  

    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 opportunities for an Advanced Trainee.
