"small black and painful..............." Wilsons Promontory National Park Warnings Or Dangers Tip by OZebomate


The worst thing abou camping here is the ants, look on the ground and you will see at least 10 in the metre square around you..................... The main ones are what victorians call jumping jacks a little clack ant with bright red nippers. They are very aggressive and hurt like hell so watch out ( they can jump pretty far too). The other ant is the bull ant witch are less common and a bit slower, but hurt even more! The fact that it was summer might have made it worse, but just make sure you close your tent and wear shoes/high socks.
