Dr Natascha De Wet

Dr Natascha De Wet


Our family immigrated from South Africa in 1987 and my parents bought a cattle station in the Carnarvon Gorge.

I completed my schooling as a boarder at Rockhampton Girls Grammar in 1989.

My University career started as a Vet Science student at UQ and then later I decided to trade animals for humans and made a move to medicine.

I completed my Medical Degree at the University of Pretoria in South Africa and there after my Fellowship in General Practice in Roma Queensland.

In 2012 we relocated to Rockhampton to give my daughters an opportunity to finish their schooling at my Alma Mater.

In South Africa I worked in general practice and established a research company that was directly involved in the development of various HIV drugs. At that time, I was also employed by the South African Police in their forensic medicine department in determining the cause of unnatural deaths by post-mortem.

Our family returned to Roma in 2004 and since then I have worked in private group practice and simultaneously had a wonderful opportunity to work as a clinical educator with the University of Queensland.

My passions are mental health, woman’s health, paediatrics, research and giving back to the upcoming medical students by teaching.

I look forward to settling in and getting to know the Chinchilla community!
