Merriwa in two minutes! While it’s impossible to fit everything we love about Merriwa into two short minutes, journalist Cathy Stubbs has done a great job at packing a lot into a short time.
In the spirit of the ABC’s Backroads, Cathy showcases towns in her Two Minute Postcards videos, providing brief insights into the attractions and delights of rural Australian communities.
A grant from the NSW state government allowed Merriwa business and community members to engage the Cathy’s services to feature our town in one of her Two Minute Postcard videos.
We gave Cathy a few tips but left her to discover for herself the natural beauty, rich history and quirky features that make our town unique.
We hope you love it as much as we do!

Merriwa Surgery would like to advise Dr Jasem will be on leave from July 15, 2021 until September 6, 2021. For those that are concerned Dr Jasem is returning following his leave and will continue to provide ongoing healthcare to the community.
During this time Dr Plaskitt will be in the practice three days per week working Monday’s through to Wednesday’s, unfortunately the surgery will need to be closed for one week during Dr Jasem’s leave commencing Monday August 9, 2021 through to Sunday August 15, 2021.
As of September 1, 2021, we would like to advise changes to our billing, we have previously been a Bulk Billing practice, this is no longer feasible for the practice and changes to mixed billing will commence in September, this means that unless you hold a pensioner concession card or are a child Under 16 years, there will be a fee for your consultation. These fee’s will be available in the surgery in the coming weeks.
Merriwa Surgery continue with our COVID vaccination clinics, please phone reception for more information.
