Our rural locations
We are based at Charles Sturt University in the Riverina and Central West region of New South Wales.
Three Rivers Department of Rural Health has six major sites across our regional footprint: Albury, Bathurst, Dubbo, Griffith, Orange and Wagga Wagga.
The Wiradjuri Nation area has been described as 'land of the three rivers':
- the Wambuul (later known as the Macquarie)
- the Galari (later known as the Lachlan)
- the Marrambidya (Murrumbidgee River).
The Murray River forms the Wiradjuri Nation's southern boundary.
Charles Sturt University Three Rivers Department of Rural Health is funded under the Australian Government’s Rural Health Multidisciplinary Training Program. In consortium partnership with the University of New South Wales, The University of Notre Dame Australia and Western Sydney University, Three Rivers DRH aims to improve the recruitment and retention of nursing, midwifery, allied health and dentistry professionals in rural and remote Australia.
We pay our respect to all First Nations elders past, present and emerging. In particular, we acknowledge the Wiradjuri, Ngunawal, Gundungurra, Birpai, Wamba Wamba Perrepa Perrepa, Wailwan, Wadi Wadi and Nari Nari peoples of Australia, who are the traditional custodians of the lands on which we work and live.
