Docs Day Off – with our own Dr Tim Warnock
Fri 03 Feb – Sat 04 Mar

Photographers: Danielle Hodgens and George Kneipp, Dr. Tim Warnock and Joseph Jacobs with assistance from Dr. Paul Trott.
This photographic exhibition shows over eighty doctors from the Cairns and Hinterland Health Region doing what they are passionate about when they are not working.
After completing a similar exhibition of photographs of the local law fraternity, Danielle and Joseph decided to pay tribute to the doctors in our region who work tirelessly for the benefit of the community.
With the support of the Cairns Photographic Society, these photographers have compiled a diverse collection of images from a broad spectrum of doctors working in both the public and private sectors. The exhibition highlights how a good balance of work and recreational time can be achieved by enjoying the natural resources and recreational facilities available in our region.
