Healthcare in Australia For Working Holiday Makers
Working Holiday Makers are generally not covered by Medicare - the public healthcare system in Australia - or entitled to Australian social security benefits. It is therefore essential to have adequate insurance and sufficient funds to support yourself during your stay in Australia.
Medical treatment in Australia can be very expensive and it is advisable to have both travel and health insurance, unless there is a reciprocal health agreement between Australia and your country of citizenship.
Enquiries about healthcare arrangements in Australia should be directed to your nearest Australian diplomatic office when you apply.
