About Us


Caring & Professional Veterinary Services

Diamond Beach Veterinary Clinic was opened in 2003 by Dr Joe [Joseph] Power BVSc and Helen Power RVN, AVN, CIV VN, TAE. After operating a successful practice in Sydney, Joe and Helen were looking for a sea change and the ability to continue with their chosen profession. They were, and still are, passionate about establishing a small community-based practice servicing the local area.
