Lack of signage
In a nutshell
Excellent tourist town
When we arrived in Beechworth it was early afternoon and i drove to the local camping area..We were on an interesting trip this time around, and many famous towns that were thrown into prominence and fame with the finding of gold deposits in some cases huge "strikes" in outback Victoria.
After arriving and organising a place to pitch our family tent a fellow camper walked over and said.."hey mate "! ,I wouldnt put my tent there as there was a large tiger snake there a while ago". So, discretion being the better part of valour I decided to move my intended campsite away from the original one and put up our tent somewhere else!...Never did see that particular tiger snake again ..and am glad for that..
Tiger snakes are very venomous and if bitten seek medical help as soon as possible.
Snakes usually will leave at the sound of your approach.
Always watch where you are walking and wear good sturdy boots.
Leave snakes alone !! do not try and catch the snake..
Treat ALL snakes as though they are venomous..NOT all are.
Common sense is the best weapon around snakes..
