Whether you are starting a job overseas, taking a tour package or backpacking around the world, it is important that you inform yourself of the health and safety risks of overseas travel. You don’t want to think that something bad will happen during your perfectly planned trip abroad. But unwanted truth is that accidents and illnesses do happen. Many people are involved in traffic accidents or minor illnesses that force them to cut their holidays short. You can minimise or prevent these incidents with proper planning and information about health and safety risks in the destination country.
Australia is a very safe holiday destination – you can drink the water, eat the food and, if the worst should happen, the medical facilities are well equipped and the staff are highly trained. However, play it safe! The more informed you are, the more adventurous you can be, because you will know what to avoid and how to get help if you need it. Below are some facts to keep in mind:

Health Issues:
Know the health risks in the area of your travel or overseas employment. Without the proper precautions, you may put yourself at risk. The following are some precaution tips:

  • Verify your insurance coverage;
  • Visit your doctor;
  • Visit your dentist;
  • Inform yourself of local medical facilities;
  • Update your travel medical kit;
  • Prepare for the sun.

Safety Issues:
Generally, Australia is a friendly and safe place to travel but you should still take responsibility for your personal safety. Be conscious of people in your immediate surroundings and keep your belongings secure at all times. The following are some important tips for backpackers:


  • Know the political situation in Australia before you travel;
  • Know about the public transportation quality;
  • Know whom to call and where to go in case of emergency;
  • Let someone know where you are;
  • Secure your belongings;
  • Keep photocopies of your important documents;
