The History of Bluewater Medical Practice

Practice Background

Bluewater Medical Waiting Room

Bluewater Medical is located 35 kilometers north of Townsville on the Bruce Highway heading north towards Cairns. The medical centre is situated in a semi-rural area set amongst the Australian bush with plenty of open spaces and fresh air.

Bluewater Medical Practice & Acupuncture Pty Ltd, affectionately known as BMP, has been operating since June 1994. In 1996 a purpose build 390 square meter practice was constructed to accommodate the growing number of patients. In October 2000, a further building extension was undertaken.

In 2006, the owners opened a second medical centre located in the beachside suburb of Bushland Beach.

In April 2011, after many months lobbying, the community of Rollingstone welcomed a satellite clinic from BMP, known as the Rollingstone Medical Centre. We had a Doctor and Nurse Travel there twice weekly, to hold clinics for the local and surrounding families. This clinic ceased in Dec 2012 as the funding finished. Plans for re-establishing this clinic are under way for 2015.


The Bluewater Medical Practice is AGPAL Accredited, fully computerised, using Best Practice Software, incorporating a large 5 bed treatment room, a spacious theatre, nine consulting rooms, a Pharmacy and a Pathology service on site. The practice mainly services those beachside suburbs of Thuringowa and Herbert Area including suburbs of Toolakea, Yabulu, Balgal Beach, and Rollingstone. It also attracts patients over a very large area with some travelling over many 100’s of kilometers to attend.

The practice offers a wide range of services such as counselling, acupuncture, massage and minor surgical procedures. We have a Cardiology Specialist who consults on a regular basis.

The surgery is very modern and employs a caring and friendly staff. It is a RRMA 5 or RA3 category and is within the Townsville-Mackay Medical Local network.
