    The answer is 'has been to' [ [ it's in the past, so you have to use the past tense]


    "Has been to" - means she has come back.

    "Has gone to" - means she is still there (ie. not here).

    Either is correct, except there should not be a "for" in the sentence.

    Peachey's explanation ignores the "several times" part of the question.

    "Pam has been to Australia several times" and "Pam has gone to Australia several times" mean the same thing and neither one gives any information about where Pam is now.
