Life in Rosebery

Tasmania’s West Coast is a world apart – a string of vibrant and close-knit communities, connected by roads that wind between rugged peaks and valleys,  surrounded on all sides by unique Gondwanan cool temperate rainforest.

Rosebery is an active mining town nestled deep within the stunning West Coast Range, on the slopes of Mount Black. The town was founded in 1893 when prospector Tom McDonald discovered gold in the area, and the main mine has been in operation since the 1930s, producing zinc, lead, copper, silver, and gold, and continuously supporting the town’s economy. Well known for its beautiful and secluded atmosphere, Rosebery boasts a number of attractions, including Australia’s steepest golf course and Tasmania’s tallest waterfall (Montezuma Falls, 113m high).

There are several more challenging walking tracks throughout the rugged peaks of Mount Black, Mount Read, Mount Farrell and Mount Murchison; these volcanic mountains surrounding Rosebery are covered in lush green rainforest, and offer spectacular views of the entire area. Lake Pieman and Lake Rosebery are popular local haunts with locals and travellers alike, providing a great spot to go camping, picnicking, or trout fishing.


  • General Registration or above with AHPRA
  • Proficient with common general practice conditions
  • Current emergency medicine certificate (ALS2, ELS etc.) and recent experience in an unsupervised setting
