Castlemaine Podiatry aims to offer a high level of professional service and care to all members of our community. We are your professional podiatry clinic in Castlemaine and understand that foot problems can impact on every aspect of our daily lives whether you are young or old, exercise recreationally or are an elite athlete or just enjoy walking the dog around the block. 
The podiatrist’s at Castlemaine Podiatry regularly attend conferences and continuing education opportunities to ensure we are aware of the latest research and treatment methods to ensure optimal care for all our clients.
“I have been seeing Julie for my footcare for some years and the treatment has been very positive and helped other issues as well. As it did for my husband who was a returned service man. As my husband is deceased now this service is free for myself and all war widows.”



"To Julie & Staff,
Thanks for taking such great care of our Dad over the past few years"
