HWB also Caters to Residents of Home Hill
Home Hill lies approximately 98 kilometers south of Townsville and 1,269 kilometers north of the state capital Brisbane on the Bruce Highway. It is a part of the Burdekin Region which includes the neighboring town of Ayr. Both towns are governed by the Burdekin Shire Council. Situated on the southern side of the Burdekin Bridge (known as the Silver Link) with an economy driven by sugar and agriculture, Home Hill offers landscapes dominated by lush green cane fields as well as access to some of North Queensland’s finest produce. Home Hill offers panoramic views of the region’s towns, farmlands, wetlands, waterways and coastline from Inkerman Hill. The township of Home Hill was established in 1913 from land carved out of the Inkerman Downs Station and is located just 12 kilometres south of Ayr. The two towns are linked via the Burdekin Bridge, the districts best-known landmark standing at an impressive 1,103m long and larger than the Sydney Harbour Bridge. To walk across the famous landmark, park near the Lion’s Diorama at the southern approach to the bridge and head to the pedestrian walkway.
With a population of 3050 people, Home Hill relies on Townsville for services that are not available locally. Health & Wellbeing North Ward offers multidisciplinary medical and health care that spans from GPs to Allied Health and Specialist care. Many families from Home Hill use our services regularly and find it convenient to drive from Home Hill and park in our spacious parking at 34 Gregory Street. We also offer specialist referrals and always make an effort to obtain early appointments for people that come from out of town. Health & Wellbeing North Ward is aware and sensitive to rural and regional conditions in the vast state of Queensland and assists as much as it can. Many Aboriginal and Torres Straight clients find it convenient and welcoming to come to this practice as we are one of the very few practices in town that employs a full-time Indigenous Health Worker. All Indigenous patients are warmly invited to Health & Wellbeing North Ward from wherever they reside.
