Welcome to the Sunshine Coast

If you’re looking for a work location that has it all, look no further than the Sunshine Coast. World-renowned beaches, parks, hiking trails, and mountain escapes are just minutes from your doorstep – and if you work with us, you’ll have the time to explore them too.

Making the most of the Sunshine Coast is easy from the central location of Tanawha. Just 10 minutes from the hospital you’ll find great places to eat and explore in Mooloolaba or drive 45 minutes north to experience one of the best beaches in Australia (as named by Tripadvisor) at Noosa Heads.

Venture just a little further up north to Tin Can Bay where you will be able to feed the dolphins by hand!

If you’re passionate about the outdoors, this really is the place for you. Work as an emergency vet professional during the night, and once you’ve had some rest – explore nature for the rest of the daylight hours.

If you’re looking for a close-knit team who really cares about the environment, you’ve come to the right place. Our team members often care for sick and injured animals and work with rehabilitation groups to release them back to their homes.

We take pride in what we do, both in and out of the hospital. We often meet up for team experiences such as self-defense training, hikes, walks, and much, much more.

The Tanawha team is by no means a small team – with over 40 team members including vets, vet nurses, and support team members. On a busy day, the team can see in excess of 50+ patients, all requiring urgent life-saving care.

Get in touch with us today for a tour around the hospital and to see if this is the right place for you.

Alongside domestic pets, you’ll have the added bonus of getting to see wildlife sent to us for care from Wildlife HQ at Australia Zoo – we even recently saw a Tasmanian Devil – now how’s that for unique!
