Northern Australia Insurance Premiums Taskforce Final Report

Publication type


The Northern Australia Insurance Premiums Taskforce was asked to consider the feasibility of options to lower insurance premiums in areas subject to high cyclone risk and to make policy recommendations. This report considers a number of options, recognising that they achieve different objectives and have distinctly different benefits, costs and risks. The report was delivered to Government in November 2015. The Government provided its response to the Taskforce on 18 December 2017.
