Moving to Richmond

The door to a new work lifestyle

Bridge Street Surgery Richmond is a great place to work, offering positions for professionals who want to work in a beautiful community in close proximity to the Tasmanian capital city of Hobart.

A few reasons to consider living and working in Richmond:

  1. Historic Charm: Richmond is known for its well-preserved Georgian architecture and historic sites, which create a unique and picturesque atmosphere. Living in such a historic town can provide a sense of connection to the past and a charming backdrop to your daily life.
  2. Small-Town Atmosphere: Richmond is a small, close-knit community where neighbors often know each other. If you enjoy the sense of community and a slower pace of life, Richmond can offer a friendly and welcoming environment.
  3. Scenic Surroundings: The town is surrounded by the scenic beauty of the Coal River Valley, with vineyards, rolling hills, and natural landscapes. If you appreciate nature and outdoor activities, you’ll have ample opportunities for hiking, picnicking, and exploring.
  4. Proximity to Hobart: Richmond is conveniently located just a short drive (about 25 kilometers or 15 miles) from Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania. This means you can enjoy the benefits of a small town while still having access to the amenities and employment opportunities in a larger city.
  5. Food and Wine: The Coal River Valley is renowned for its wineries and gourmet food producers. If you appreciate fine wines and local cuisine, Richmond’s proximity to these attractions can be a significant draw.
  6. Low Crime Rates: Tasmania, in general, has relatively low crime rates compared to many other places in the world. Richmond, as a small town, often enjoys a particularly low crime rate, contributing to a sense of safety and security.
  7. Relaxed Lifestyle: Richmond offers a more relaxed and less hectic lifestyle compared to larger cities. If you prefer a quieter, less stressful environment, you’ll find it here.
  8. Community Events: The town hosts various community events and festivals throughout the year, providing opportunities to socialise, participate in local traditions, and get to know your neighbours.
