Darwin Warnings and Dangers: 34 reviews and 42 photos
Many visitors when driving in Australia's "outback" DO NOT take the wildlife into consideration . These animals can be very numerous and to hit any at speed can be disiasterous even fatal. The driving distances here are vast with Towns and Road Houses long distances apart.and although the areas are so sparsely populated speeding vehicles having accidents with wildlife and feral animals is inevitabel.
Local people usually do not drive, if at all, at high speeds at night . I always try and be off isolated country Highways at sunset and organising my camp or accomodation. as sunset is when wildlife comes out to eat and "fossick for food". There are other animals ALSO to be aware of when driving here as there are numerous large "feral" animals roaming the outback ie: camels, horses, buffalo, lost cattle, wild pigs ,donkeys, wild dogs and of course then there is all the natural wildlife..Please remember this can happen in extremely isolated areas where there is NO help and NO communication....so Please take care when driving "Aussies outback"
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE OF ADVISORY WILDLIFE ROAD SIGNS..THEY ARE THERE FOR A GOOD REASON
