HEART OF AUSTRALIA

The specialist services provided by Heart of Australia are very close to home for the road transport industry, where heart disease is over represented due in part to the long working hours, and often limited access to regular exercise and healthy diet options. Our customer base also includes many who have chosen to live and work outside metropolitan areas, and as a result, may not have ready access to health care specialists.
PACCAR Australia was among the first to support the Heart of Australia program, and we remain committed to continuing as the program now grows in reach and stature.
Through Heart of Australia, we have been able to help promote better health choices across our industry, while also assisting regional and remote Queenslanders to access improved health and well-being resources. By supporting the Heart of Australia’s focus on providing critical specialist health care directly to these areas, we are also helping keep rural Australia vibrant and productive by supporting residents within their communities, not many kilometres away in the major cities.
