Welcome to Northern District Community Health Service

NDCHS acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s strong connection to country and community, and that our work within the community takes place on their traditional land. We offer our respect to the elders of these traditional lands, and through them to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.


NDCHS operates throughout the Gannawarra Shire & the Northern end of the Loddon Shire, as well as some of our services extending into the Swan Hill & Buloke Shires. Our main office is located in Kerang in the state of Victoria, Australia and is a 3 hours’ drive from Melbourne, the States Capital. Situated within Victoria's thriving Loddon Murray region, the major regional centres of Bendigo, Echuca and Swan Hill are only around 1 hour away by road. The towns of Cohuna, Boort, Koondrook, Kerang, Murrabit, Lalbert, Pyramid Hill, Leitchville, and Quambatook are all part of our service area and each make up a significant part of the area's charm.

Treat yourself to a lifestyle change that provides the necessary balance between business and pleasure. Finish work at 5:00pm and enjoy a game of golf on an 18-hole course set amongst a redgum forest, take the family water skiing or swimming, or perhaps play bowls or tennis.

Fish the mighty Murray River, walk or bike ride around the many lakes & wetlands, or just enjoy the endless hours of sunshine and great weather with a BBQ at a friend’s place.

We do have a great lifestyle and we do have great opportunity – let us share it with you!
