The town has a large population of young families but all demographics are represented. There are a higher proportion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, consistent with the Cairns region. There are a range of professions including those professionals working in Cairns, locally and tradespeople and farmers. The work is typical general practice including a range of acute presentations, skin checks and excisions.
