About Mitchell

Mitchell sits peacefully on the banks of the Maranoa River. It lies in the westerly-most reaches of Southern Queensland Country and services the adjoining communities of Amby, Muckadilla and Mungallala. Soaking in the soothing mineral springs at Mitchell is just one of the surprises that awaits you in this quaint town on the edge of the outback. The economy relies heavily on agriculture, tourism, primary production such as cattle, sheep, cypress pine milling and a quarry with crops grown in the eastern part of the area.

Close-by attractions include;

  • Carnarvon Gorge
  • Walks along the Maranoa River
  • The Great Artesian Spa
  • Go fishing at Fisherman’s Rest

Preceptor was unreal. Made me feel incredibly welcomed and a part of the team. Excellent teacher. More than happy to answer as many questions as I could throw at him. I cannot recommend him enough. All of the rest of the staff were similarly brilliant, including reception staff, nurses, PHO and the relieving SMO.
I have learnt a lot and made some great friends.
