Dr. Debra Barnes

Dr. Debra Barnes, B.App.Sc.Chiropractic. 

After 20 years in practice, Dr. Barnes still loves being a chiropractor every day- “Being a health resource for a family-oriented practice, I am passionate about helping families take control of their healthcare, guiding and caring for those around us as we all navigate helping our families be as healthy as possible. We are in this together as parents and partners.”

Her love for natural therapies has been spurred along by the need for natural interventions in her own family growing up, as well as in her children from the time they were born.


Having grown up around internationals in PNG and America, her accent may fool you that she is a native Australian. She graduated in 1998 from RMIT Melbourne, Australia. In 1999 she moved to Seattle, USA with her husband and shortly after moved to Jackson Mississippi, where they settled for 15 years and she opened a large clinic. After leaving Jackson to move to Australia in 2015 to live by family in Doonan, she has working in the Noosa area for 3 years before the opportunity to take over Good Chap Chiropractic was offered. 

A fresh change is always good and a good opportunity for personal refinement, says Dr. Deb, “I am excited to be settling down at Goodchap Chiropractic, to invest in a long-term practice and to establish great relationships with awesome practice members– we are here to stay. Come visit!”
