The Location:

The Broken Hill region is rich with Aboriginal culture and is full of spirit, history, diversity and character to explore and uncover – an iconic destination for every Australian to visit.

The Barkindji people have called the Maari Ma region home for over 50,000 years and are passionate about sharing their cultural values, history, and sacred places.

The Oasis of the Outback, Broken Hill is a living, breathing time capsule where the Aboriginal history and great mining prosperity of yesteryear blends seamlessly with a rising modern art scene, all set amid a sprawling desert landscape. It is a place of huge skies, rocky red earth, and a fascinating and internationally significant history. This historic town is great for all ages and has several day-cares, primary schools, high schools, and TAFE.

Beyond Broken Hill and on your doorstep, you can immerse yourself in the natural landscape via spectacular national parks with rich First Nations and colonial & pastoral history, lush rivers and lakes, abundant wildlife, and other classic towns of outback New South Wales and beyond.

All Maari Ma Aboriginal Health employees are required to have three doses of a COVID-19 vaccination or provide an approved medical contraindication certificate.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians are encouraged to apply for this position.

Maari Ma acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land in which we live, and we pay our respect to their Elders both past and present and emerging.
