Like anywhere in Northern Australian tropical areas always make sure that you carry and use a strong reliable mosquito repellant. There is now the chance of Dengue fever being transmitted by mosquitos in northern Australia. So when the sun is going down make sure that you are wearing long sleeves and long pants. if not, make sure thatALL exposed skin is covered with a good repellant. (don't forget your neck and ears!) This is I beleive is a neccesary precaution as some mosquito transmitted disease can have grave ongoing consequences.
