Australia is a unique country that's home to glistening monuments like the Sydney Opera House, vast plains and blue waters packed with exotic marine life. During your trip, you can see rock artwork that's over 20,000 years old in the Kakadu National Park, learn how to scuba dive at the Great Barrier Reef or explore Sydney's famous skyline.

Australia's Aboriginal culture is something most visitors love to explore. The Aboriginal people come from over 500 different first nations, and they're the inheritors of the longest continuous culture on earth. You can head into the outback to learn about Aboriginal culture, but many people choose to take a walking tour, admire the local art or try a bush-tucker experience.

Australia offers a warm climate making it the perfect place to enjoy a beach break, too. Luckily, you're never far from one. Sydney has Bondi Beach and Manly Beach within 25 minutes of the city centre, and both of these are regularly voted as being among the best in the world.

If you'd rather discover beauty off shore, then the Great Barrier Reef is the place to be. It stretches for over 2,000km and contains beautiful coral networks, gliding rays and tropical fish of every colour and size. You can either head on a glass-bottomed boat ride, or snorkel and come face-to-face with the fish below the surface.

There's just as much wildlife to see and discover on dry land, too. Many tourists love Australia's wildlife parks like Kangaroo Island and Daintree Rainforest. You'll never forget watching kangaroos bound across the field and seeing the koalas hugging the trees.

Culturally, Australia is very similar to the UK and it's a member of the Commonwealth, so the King is still the head of state. English is the de facto national language, so you'll have no problem communicating with the locals. The Australian Dollar is the national currency, and you can either exchange your money before you travel or exchange it while you're in Australia.

Whatever you plan on doing in Australia, it's important that you get travel insurance to protect yourself against unforeseen eventualities.

Unsurprisingly, Australia’s incredibly popular with backpackers. From the beaches of Sydney to the country’s Aboriginal landmarks, there’s plenty to discover. If you’re aged 50 or under, our Backpacker insurance can help cover your trip.
Many sports and leisure activities are covered on our standard travel insurance policies at no additional premium. We are unable to provide cover for riskier sports and leisure activities like kite surfing and rugby. This is a temporary measure while we make improvements. Please keep an eye on the Allianz Assistance website in the future so you are aware when we are able to offer this additional cover again.
From 5th May 2021 we will no longer be offering travel insurance policies to cover people’s pre-existing medical conditions. This is only a temporary measure while we make improvements to our online booking engine. Please keep an eye on the Allianz Assistance website in the future so you are aware when we are able to offer this additional cover again.
If you’re taking your whole family on the holiday of a lifetime to Australia, you can put everyone on the same policy with our Family travel insurance.
