North Queensland home insurance

In recent times, North Queensland has been severely impacted by natural disasters including cyclones and floods, and these disasters have contributed to rising insurance premiums.

This website is an Australian Government initiative designed to help North Queensland residents compare some home insurance policies and indicative premiums offered in North Queensland.

More information

  • Disputes information: The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) publishes some statistics on disputes information it receives as a free external dispute resolution scheme for disputes about products that include home insurance. Please note that disputes in FOS may not relate to claims, contain information for all of Australia and not simply North Queensland, and are based on insurance company groups – not divided into particular insurance brands. FOS data also depends on the particular factual circumstances of each dispute. 
  • Assumptions:
    • Specific characteristics have been selected based on common home insurance attributes for the North Queensland region, and key rating factors generally affecting premiums to give a range of profiles which is broadly representative of Buildings and Contents risks in North Queensland. These risk profiles are only an indication and are not tailored to your particular property, personal circumstances or relevant insurance history. As such, the resulting premium information is indicative only (your actual quotes may be higher or lower than the comparison results displayed). A quote obtained from an individual insurer will vary, perhaps significantly, from the indicative premiums presented on this website. 
    •   These characteristics are a reasonably common combination of property characteristics in North Queensland locations with a sum insured at this level. A number of other assumptions have also been made.
