ACT ambulance cover

Can anyone recommend ambo cover for the ACT that hopefully includes NSW? This is for bushwalking but also elsewhere. Thanks.

Most health funds have separate ambulance cover but don't publicise it. When I checked my regular health insurance I was surprised to find that my regular hospital + extras cover only covers one trip per year. I have since taken out separate ambulance cover. I went with the unlimited option for about $55 per year - Australia wide.

Ouch, one trip per year. This should be checked as the insurer could advertise "Ambulance cover included" but not say that it's just one trip. Victoria has separate ambulance cover for individuals and families for about $50 and $100 a year.
