"Australia has wonderful..." Top 5 Page for this destination Australia Off The Beaten Path Tip by iandsmith

Australia Off The Beaten Path: 423 reviews and 697 photos


Australia has wonderful wildlife, especially in the forests. It also has things that will eat you, i.e. crocs and sharks, and things that will kill you, i.e. box jellyfish, funnelweb spiders, snakes etc. The thing to remember is, you will probably never see the nasties unless you go to a zoo but, if you do go in their environment, take precautions and be careful.
After that, there are thousands of wonderful animals to see, especially birds in the bush. The key is to find a spot, sit down and be quiet, and within minutes you will usually be surprised at the amount you can see and hear.
This picture is of a beautiful non venemous diamond python which, like the majority of snakes, is harmless to man (unless you upset them - just like humans!).
