Health and Safety

Australian people enjoy a high level of good health. The nation has quality housing, water and sanitation, and an adequate supply of food and medicines. Health care in Australia follows western traditions with technical and scientific skills used to prevent, examine and treat ill health. People coming to Australia have health checks before entering the country as another way to keep it a healthy nation.

Australia is generally a safe destination with travellers enjoying unhindered travel experiences in terms of their personal safety and security. Their stable political system, well-maintained roads, low crime rate and high standard of health make it a safe and easy country to explore. You can safely enjoy Australia’s unique landscapes – from the vast outback to wild ocean beaches and pristine wilderness. However, as with all travel at home or away, you should observe the same precautions with your personal safety and possessions.
