TEN years on from studying veterinary science together at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga, good mates, Harry and Cameron are on the verge of opening their first practise together, and they’ve chosen to Do It In Douglas!
Harry and his partner Teagan arrived a few weeks ago with their two dogs Boudicca and Hilde, and the family is quickly falling in love with living in Port Douglas.
Harry describes the decision to move to Douglas and open the veterinary clinic as “veterinarian utopia.”
“Opening a clinic in Port Douglas ticks all the boxes,” he said. “Cam and I have studied together, worked together and been good mates since uni. We share the same vision of what a clinic in a regional town should be, how it should function, and what sort of role it should play within the community.”
“We love the small-town community vibe of Port Douglas,” said Harry. “Everyone is super friendly and helpful, and very supportive of what we are doing with the new clinic”.
“Four Mile Beach is a great spot for the dogs, and we love fishing and diving. We can spend time out on the water one weekend, and in the thick of the rainforest the next.”
Harry’s business partner Cameron will arrive in Port Douglas in the coming months with his young family, which will soon include the arrival of baby twins.
Port Douglas Vets opened in Pioneer Close Craigie this week, being the first on-premise vet in Port Douglas for many years.
