Our rural locations
We are based at Charles Sturt University in the Riverina and Central West region of New South Wales.
Three Rivers University Department of Rural Health has five major sites across our regional footprint including Albury, 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), and
- the Marrambidya (Murrumbidgee River).
The Murray River forms the Wiradjuri Nation's southern boundary.
At the heart of the work of the Three Rivers UDRH is the education and training in regional Australia of a future rural health workforce for a ‘world worth living in'.
