This is a vibrant private practice, with offices in both Fraser and Sunshine Coast locations. They are passionate about improving communication, health and well being for both children and adults. The multi-disciplinary health care centre provides clients with speech and occupational therapy services all in the one convenient location.

Situated three and a half hours drive north of Queensland’s capital, Brisbane, Hervey Bay is a natural bay between the mainland and World Heritage-listed Fraser Island. Renowned for its visiting humpback whales, and the close and intimate Whale Watching experiences that the local fleet can offer, Hervey Bay is a popular playground for tourists all year round because of its mild climate.

Hervey Bay’s golden beaches stretch for approximately 14 kilometres along the Bay’s foreshore offering families a safe haven to swim or to just enjoy the sand. Directly opposite the esplanade, all beaches are close to services and facilities. Sheltered by Fraser Island, the beach side town of Hervey Bay is a friendly and relaxing place to visit!
