Kununurra Medical, a fully accredited private practice in Kununurra, WA, is seeking General Practitioners to join our team. We are a social enterprise with 100% of our profits used to support programs that aim to improve primary health care and unlock the potential of Aboriginal people in the East Kimberley to develop a better life for self and family.

If you want a career where you can make a real difference, and you are passionate about our mission to provide quality medical care and support our partner Wunan Foundation, then consider working with Kununurra Medical. 

The many benefits of working for Kununurra Medical include:

  • Working for a values based organisation with a clear mission and vision

Kununurra Medical has a difference, we are not owned by an owner doctor or a group of doctors. We are also not run by a corporate owner. We run independently as a private practice owned by The Wunan Foundation. Profits from the practice return to Wunan and are invested to provide programs that build capacity and capability of Aboriginal people in the East Kimberley. In 2020 we will be moving to a new purpose built practice with greater capacity to provide innovative services to the local community.

Kununurra is based in the East Kimberley region of Western Australia, the traditional land of the Mirriwoong Gajerrong people. Kununurra is a town full of wonderful natural marvels that can be accessed within a half hour’s drive from the town centre. If you love hiking, camping, chasing waterfalls and fishing, Kununurra is definitely the place to be! While your week days will be filled with rewarding work with local patients, your weekends will be full of exciting 4WD adventures, secret swimming spots and some of the most breathtaking scenery in Australia. In addition to year-round attractions, Kununurra also hosts the famous Ord Valley Muster in May where you will be able to enjoy the Kununurra Rodeo, guided tours, cultural shows and so much more! You will also get to be a part of the fashionable Kununurra Races at the end of the dry season. Kununurra features a fully equipped gym with a swimming pool, squash courts and fitness classes. Additional sports include tennis, footy, yoga, boxing and golf. The town is also home to a number of wonderful cafes, restaurants and pubs while also being within easy reach of the famous Lake Argyle and the historic town of Wyndham along with its many fascinating attractions.
