Heart of Australia

The Brown & Hurley Group is proud to be a major sponsor of The Heart of Australia Program.

Welcome to Heart of Australia. It’s a program that embodies the most innovative approach to front-line specialist medical service delivery in generations, specifically aiming to help Australians whose lives are threatened by this nation’s vast distances.

Heart of Australia is breaking the grip of distance that denies rural and remote-area Australians access to services when and where they are needed most. Heart of Australia delivers fortnightly specialist medical investigation and treatment clinics to regional, rural and remote area communities across Queensland, including Dalby, Goondiwindi, Stanthorpe, St George, Charleville, Roma, Emerald, Barcaldine, Longreach, Hughenden, Charters Towers and Moranbah.

Heart of Australia brings specialist services to rural communities on a 25m-long custom-designed clinic-on-wheels, driven by a Kenworth K200 prime mover. The clinic-on-wheels has travelled more than 150,000km on the road covering an area of more than 450,000 square kilometres.

The purpose-built, self-sufficient trailer provides two private clinic rooms, a testing room and a reception area for patients. It is wheelchair accessible and fully-air-conditioned.
