It sounds like you're already in Australia which will narrow your options down a lot since most require you to take out insurance before leaving your country of residence. World Nomads is one of the few that I know of that will allow you to buy it while already travelling.

Your profile mentions Ireland. If you are a citizen of Ireland, then you should be aware that you are entitled to health care in Australia under a reciprocal health care scheme. There are things that travel insurance covers which are not covered of course like ambulances, stolen goods, and so on, but at least for all your emergency medical care you are pretty well covered by this scheme.

Not saying you shouldn't get insurance, but it's good to know.
