The hospital is situated on Missenden Road. If you stand at the entrance of the hospital, facing the street, in front of the 1882 fa├žade, the choices open to you are as wide as the points of the compass.
If you were to walk to your left, you would quickly reach King Street and the suburb of Newtown. Here there is a cornucopia of cafes and interesting shops interspersed with great pubs.
From King Street you can catch a 370 bus which will take you to Coogee and the eastern suburbs beaches of Sydney where the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean roll onto miles of golden sands. From Coogee there is a magnificent cliff-top walk to the famous Bondi Beach, where you can sun-bake and swim all day and rage all night at the many waterfront cafes, clubs and bars.
Back to the front entrance of RPAH, in front of you and slightly to the west, is Parramatta Road where you can walk or take a short bus ride to Norton Street. This area is the Little Italy of Sydney where charming cafes with pavement tables serve the best Italian food outside of Italy, interspersed with little bookshops and fashion boutiques. And off Norton Street, is the Italian Forum which replicates a typical Italian piazza with two levels of cafes and shops and three levels of residential apartments.Sorry, no jobs at the moment for this category and search.
