Australia has some of the deadliest snakes on Earth. Nevertheless, it should stop you from going down under. Just treat each snake with respect and do not handle them without proper training or supervision. You can often pet them and even handle them at zoos and tourists attractions. Some hostels and hotels have special days where a local zoo or animal sanctuary would bring along a few snakes to show them around for free. They do this to entice you to visit their premises. These are wonderful opportunities to handle snakes. Otherwise, you can expect to see many snakes tanning themselves on desolated highways across Australia or in the middle of a trekking trail.
