Kaitaia is your gateway to paradise; it is the last main town on State Highway 1 before you reach the iconic Te Rerenga Wairua (or Cape Reinga) which is the northern tip of Aotearoa, New Zealand.

Kaitaia is rich in culture and heritage combining stories of the first settlers, home to five iwi; Ngati Kuri, Te Rarawa, Te Aupouri, Ngati Kahu & Ngai Takoto; and the Dalmation settlers, each with their own stories intertwining history and special memories and places for each.

In just 20 minutes you can reach more than 20 different bays or beaches that are mostly unpopulated. 

The serene beauty, the peacefulness and our location will leave footprints in your soul.


Essential Requirements:

  • General registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand or eligibility for this
  • Previous experience in general practice or internal medicine


  • Rural medical experience
