I am heading for Austrialia on a work/holiday visa for one year and am having some trouble finding reasably priced health insurance - anyone have any recommendations?

Specifying where you're from is helpful for this question; I could recommend the Dutch insurance I used while on a WHV (though I picked it for its comprehensive coverage, not for being cheap) - but unless you're from the Netherlands as well, that won't do you any good.
Travellerspoint recommends / partners with World Nomads for insurance (which is available for most countries), mostly (I think) as one of the admins has used them in the past and was happy with them. I think I've heard people say that they're also not very cheap, though I don't know how they compare. Of course, after some point you get what you pay for...

Sorry I am from Canada so I don't think Dutch insurance will work -anyways thanks for trying - also I do not have a return ticket as I don't know how long I will be away for probably 9months to 12 months - is this a problem?
