Chinchilla is a four-hour drive west of Brisbane in the Western Downs Region of Queensland, population 6,500. The town is famous for its melons and a renowned spot for fossicking, fishing, bushwalking and camping. Producing 25 per cent of the country's watermelons, rockmelons and honeydew melons. Chinchilla is the undisputed melon capital. Nothing captures the strong community spirit of this town better than the biennial 'Chinchilla Melon Festival'. Chinchilla is a peaceful and pretty town, featuring a beautiful tree-lined main street just off the highway. Head to the Cultural Centre, the pride of the street. Its award-winning design includes a cinema, library and the White Gums Art Gallery. Fossickers from around the world come in search of much sought after "Chinchilla Red" petrified wood.
After Hours
Out of hours call outs are generally directed to the hospital where the doctor will attend the patient in the presence of nursing and other staff. Whilst house calls are made available to our patients, the decision to agree to attend at home is that of the doctor. During hours they will only be asked to visit their own patients and where these are not well known by the registrar, they can take advice from the principal GPs, one of whom will take over the call if felt appropriate. Alternatively, an ambulance will be booked to bring the patient to the Practice or hospital.
