What rights can the dependents of an 888 visa holder enjoy in Australia?

I am planning to apply for an 888 permanent visa in Australia. I would like to know which rights they can enjoy in terms of health care, education and work permits. Can I enroll my family in public health care programs? Can my children get the same tuition rates as residents? Are they authorized to work in Australia?

    An 888 visa is a permanent visa that gives the visa holder access to the healthcare system in Australia called Medicare. It has full work rights and visa holders can access the public education system. A permanent resident would pay domestic rates on university or college tuition fees, which are a third of the price of what an international student would pay.

    All the same rights as a permanent resident has except voting.
