Sale is a regional town and it has everything that you need with regards to natural attractions, access to education and sports facilities and a community mix of people. Some of them have been farmers for many generations as well as many professionals who come and work in all in gas fields close to the Sale area. The travel distance to Melbourne is two and a half hours which is manageable if you have to go to the city.
Having said that it doesn't take us very long to come back to Sale.
Rural practice gives you clinical independence and the ability to use a variety of skills. You do not get bored as there is always a new challenge as well as the ability to have multiple roles as a GP, mentor, educator, counsellor, manager etc.
