Tropical Vet Services are seeking several experienced Vets. 

Come and work in the Northern Tropics of Queensland. Escape the Southern States where you can enjoy the sun, rainforest, Great Barrier Reef, and much, much more, without COVID-19 lockdowns and other restrictions!

Experienced Vets are being sought for vacancies at several of our clinics; a perfect opportunity for those that are wanting to relocate to our beautiful part of the world.   

Tropical Vet Services is a privately owned group of clinics based on the North Queensland tropical coast between Babinda (to the North) and Ayr (to the South).  We have five full-service clinics and three, smaller satellite clinics.

All of our clinics are mixed animal clinics and our five main clinics are set up with full in-house blood machines, digital xray, ultrasounds (small and large animal), endoscopes etc.

Our group of practices currently employ 19 Veterinarians across our clinics.  

Their interests include 

- Small Animal orthopaedics (including cruciates and fracture repairs)

- Bovine Reproduction (including ET, FTAI and BBSE’s), nutrition and production

- Equine reproduction (including AI’s), dentals and medicine

- Small animal behaviour

- Wildlife work (including Crocodiles and Cassowaries)

- Remote Indigenous Community work on Cape York

Tropical Vets are also seeking new graduates wanting to start out in a job where they will be supported via our ‘New Graduate Program’. Our new graduate program includes monthly zoom hook ups within Tropical Vet Services to discuss cases or particular topics, tutorials with visiting specialists and when time allows days out on farm doing routine horse or cattle procedures.

We do have specialists that work with us so we can offer internal referrals for those cases that need it and North Queensland is blessed with travelling specialists in Dermatology, Cardiology, Ophthalmology and Surgery that visit the region for those extra tricky cases.

Salary will be well above award and is negotiable. Afterhours on call work is part of the job but you will be well compensated for it (including working a 4-day week each week). We will also assist with relocation costs to make your move North more affordable.

For further information, or to apply please send a covering letter and your resume to or phone 0491 202 898.
