Travel Clinic at the Royal Children's Hospital


A non-refundable booking fee of $20 per family member is applicable to secure the appointment. We accept payment by credit card over the phone. The usual cost for a consultation is $270.00 for a standard consultation or $370 for a complex consultation. If you need to move your appointment, 48 hours’ notice is needed, but please note reception may not be able to offer you another date before your traveling dates. The booking fee will not be refundable in this instance.

If additional family members need an appointment they will be bulk billed for the consultation with a valid referral.

If your child is eligible for the BCG vaccination this vaccine will be included in the consultation fee. Some patients require a skin test prior to the BCG vaccination. The doctors will not know prior to the appointment if this test is needed. If a tuberculin skin test (Mantoux) is required, the BCG vaccine will need to be delayed by a minimum of 3 days. Some patients may be required to attend a follow-up appointment which will be bulk billed.

If additional vaccines are recommended these will be need to be purchased at CPMG but will be administered by the nurse at no extra cost.
