This practice covers a large geographical area, and is the sole provider of GP services in a 70km radius. We are looking for someone who can be resourceful and happy to cover a wide range of illness and emergency presentations. A good sense of humour is hugely helpful.

Most of our patient population is Maori, some living very remotely, and knowledge, appreciation or curiosity of Te Ao Maori would be helpful. This doctor should be vocationally registered to be able to work without oversight requirement.


Murupara was a staging post on the road between Rotorua and Napier before it became a timber town.

In the early 1900s, planting of the huge Kaingaroa Forest began. At 2,900 square kilometres, Kaingaroa is the largest plantation forest in the southern hemisphere.

Murupara has a predominately Māori population. With four marae in the area, it’s a good place to learn about the Māori way of life.

The town is handy to the Te Urewera National Park and Whirinaki Te Pua a Tāne – both offer exceptional wilderness hiking, hunting and fishing opportunities.

The tourist city of Rotorua is only 45 minutes away where you can enjoy, thermal hot pools, great tracks, gondola rides, and amazing food and wine.
