General Practitioner


Fellow of Royal Australian College of General Practitioner

Dr Liyanage graduated in Sri Lanka in 2000 and completed his internship in the UK. In 2006 he relocated to Australia where he commenced his medical journey at the Royal Darwin Hospital and progressed to fulfilling his dream of becoming a General Practitioner. He is passionate about continuity of care, holistic health and more recently wellbeing. Furthermore, he has special interests in skin cancer care medicine and surgery, diabetes, arthritis and mental health. His self-exploration deeper into mindfulness and meditation has inspired him to share the benefits with his patients. He says, “I strongly believe that learning about yourself by becoming a friend to your soul is the beginning of wellness”. Through his own experiences, he understands the importance of good mental health, resilience and a strong sense of self as keys to unlocking challenges to physical health and wellbeing. Therefore, you will find a non-judgmental, safe space to discuss life’s most tricky and difficult health conditions, as Dr Liyanage understands that seeking help is the first step in the process to “wellness”. He is dedicated to ongoing learning and upskilling in evidenced based medicine and best practice management with an individualised, supportive and compassionate approach. In addition to medicine, Dr Liyanage has been the General Manager of Top End Medical Services since 2017. He enjoys spending time with his family and pets, travelling, listening and singing along to 70’s, 80’s music and ballads, keeps fit by bike riding, monkey bar gym group fitness, snowboarding and playing cricket. His love for cricket reached a pinnacle when he captained his local team to win a premiership in the Darwin district competition
