Australia has a well-developed tourism industry and health care system. Despite the precautions recommended in this paper, Australia has been virtually free of local outbreaks of life threatening tropical diseases in recent decades. This paper focuses on health and safety issues for travellers to Australia, especially the special precautions for those travelling to more rural and remote areas in outback Australia. Travellers to Australia should be advised that, in general, Australia is a relatively safe country in which to travel, and it has high standards of health and hygiene.
