The Nunyara Aboriginal Health Service is an RACGP clinically accredited service that provides culturally appropriate comprehensive primary health care, health promotion and education programs for the Aboriginal Community in Whyalla.  In 2019-2020 we had 1430 Aboriginal clients.

Nunyara is looking to attract the services of a full-time general practitioner to join our team of Aboriginal Health Practitioners & Workers, other General Practitioners, Nurses, Allied Health professionals and visiting specialists.

Over the past 3 years Nunyara has experienced rapid growth in patient numbers and has attracted new professionals to provide additional services to our community. Nunyara now boasts a visiting Endocrinologist, Paediatrician, Loss and Grief Counsellor and Optometrist. Our clinic also regularly hosts visiting external specialists such as a Respiratory Nurse, Podiatrists, Dietician and Diabetes Educator. There are also more exciting times ahead for our service, with a proposed expansion, and a recent $1M grant awarded to a consortium of 5 Aboriginal Community Controlled Services across the Eyre Peninsula and Far West Coast.


Nunyara is proud to be an Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Service with a Board, CEO, Finance and Administration Staff, IT staff and also specialist health staff trained in areas such as chronic care, sexual health, ear and eye health, immunisation, and tackling smoking. We are committed to teaching and learning, recently employing 2 Trainee positions, hosting 5th year medical students from Adelaide University each year, and supporting a roving Registrar through GPEX annually.
