Famous for being the sugar capital of Australia, The Burdekin district is located about one hour drive south of Townsville. Nestled in the delta of the mighty Burdekin River, its two popular townships—Ayr and Home Hill—are linked by the iconic Burdekin Bridge. The region produces the biggest sugar cane crops in the country, together with a diverse selection of vegetables and tropical fruits.

Along the coast you will find Alva Beach, a popular launching spot for dive boats heading out to explore the S.S Yongala shipwreck. This shipwreck has been ranked as one of the top 10 wreck dives in the world because of its abundant mega-marine life and corals. The Burdekin region is also a popular spot for fishing, well-known for it's barramundi, mudcrabs, other estuary species and off-coast reef fishing.

The DRT role will provide the local schools with consistent access to replacement teachers throughout 2021 and beyond. The successful applicants will have the best of both worlds - the opportunity to experience a range of schools for daily and short term relief, while also having the stability and security of guaranteed full-time employment! DRTs are also provided the same entitlements as classroom teachers, including leave entitlements, non-contact time and access to professional development.
