In our adventures to look at the ups and downs of practicing osteopathy around the world we thought it would be great to look at osteopathy and osteopath jobs in Australia.

I know for the British, the idea of spending time holidaying in Australia would be nothing short of a dream come true. From the beaches, the food, kangaroos, touring Sydney, I have never heard of a bad trip to Australia (at least among my circle of friends). The tales of their journey to literally the other side of the world, have been nothing short of spectacular.
