A Higher Education Contributions Scheme (HECS) or HELP (Higher Education Loan Program), debt is incurred when the Federal Government lends you money to fund your university education which you do not need to repay until you earn over a certain threshold.

The beauty of this is that the loan is interest free. Therefore the short answer is no, there’s no rush to repay your debt.
