Gympie Veterinary Services in South-East Queensland requires an experienced large animal vet for it’s busy, long established and still growing mixed practice.

Our practice is a true mix of companion animals, cattle (dairy and beef), horses, small ruminants and wildlife.

We don’t have mixed vets.  We have small animal vets and large animal vets.  This means you can be great in your area of interest and don’t have to worry about the other species when you are on call as we have a small animal on call roster and a large animal on call roster.  We think we can give our clients better service by having our vets dedicated either to their pets or their horses and production animals.

We live and work in an ideal location surrounded by beautiful countryside yet being within an hour of beaches, national parks, Noosa and the Sunshine Coast and under 2 hours to Brisbane. 

The role:

  • 100% large animals – equine focused plus beef, dairy, small ruminants
  • The work takes us within a radius of approximately 200km.
  • Horse work consists of reproduction, dentistry and lameness workups as well as the usual ambulatory cases. Routine and non-routine surgeries are handled at this clinic.
  • You will see handle the full range of cattle work – pregnancy diagnosis, bull testing, lame cows, down cows.
  • If you are keen on herd health you can deliver our ProDairy services across the region.
  • We have on site large animal facilities and all the expected equipment.
  • It’s really busy but we don’t expect you to do ridiculous shifts. We work hard to manage a sensible work week.

What we need:

  • 5+ years’ experience in mixed practice with a large animal focus (if you consider yourself driven and enthusiastic with only have a few years’ mixed experience and are ready to focus on solely large animal, please talk to us)
  • A great team player. We have a large team of over 35 staff with vets ranging from 1 to 25+ years’ experience.
  • A vet who takes responsibility for their case load
  • A vet who is keen to advance their skills via CE (which we strongly support)
  • Someone with a sense of humour who knows how to enjoy life and work
  • Ideally we need someone to start within the next month or 2. However we can be flexible and will consider all options.


  • Tell us what you need. We believe we offer a very generous salary package along with a huge range of benefits that comes with being a part of the Apiam Animal Health family of mixed and production animal practices across Australia.
  • Visa sponsorship and relocation assistance provided for experienced overseas applicants
