    Yes alan, we have some serious nasty’s here. Common sense plays a big part, don’t swim in crocodile infested waters (but plenty do), don’t swim in the sea up north in Summer (Box jelly fish season), don’t swim in the surf at dusk or dawn (shark feeding times), always wear shoes in long grass (snakes), and be conscious of spiders in damp areas (funnel web spiders) or hot dry areas (redback spiders).

    Tourists get caught more times than not, but if you let your guard down, or like ‘nature’ around your house, you’ll come face to face with our deadly neighbors eventually.

    Welcome to Australia 🙂
