Benalla Church Street Surgery


We are a long-established and typical country town general practice. The practice is non bulk-billing, fully computerised, and AGPAL accredited. We are also a registered teaching practice with the University of Melbourne and MCCC Region Training Network. We have been providing general practice and many other services to residents, visitors and workers of Benalla for over 35 years. The practice is situated in a beautiful old Victorian building which has been extensively refurbished and fully equipped for rural general practice. All of our GP’s are vocationally registered and have a commitment to providing quality general practice and to continuing medical education. We have a range of other services available including diabetes education, counselling and chronic disease management. Benalla is a beautiful small rural town situated on a lake featuring a well known Art Gallery and services a rural population of around 15,000. It is a two and a half hour drive from Melbourne on the Hume Freeway, and quite close to North Eastern wineries and snowfields
