    Unstable Cliffs

    by cjg1 Updated May 6, 2015

    As we explored many of the sights along the GOR; there were postings of unstable cliffs. Areas such as the Twelve Apostles are perched high above the beach and have areas of instability. Best to be careful; watch the signs and adhere to the paths that are marked safe. Don't make your holiday into a trip to the hospital.

    The Water is Quite COLD!

    by cjg1 Updated May 6, 2015

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My wife loves the water and the temps were heating up during our afternoon; so she decided to test the water. Yeah, it was freezing cold, so no ocean dip for her that day. We asked a local fisherman if this was the norm for this time of year and he told us yes. The water tends to be a bit colder here in the South.

    Brrrrrrr.......it's cold!

    Australia does have it's share of creatures that can kill you: sharks, jelly fish, snakes, insects, spiders.drop bears (just kidding that is a joke on the tourists). If you see a sign posted warning of a potential animal hazzard; please pay attention to it and be aware.

  • Beware when Swimming/Boating and Fishing

    by Anne12 Updated Aug 30, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Again I will say to visitors to any beach/lake/water hole in Australia, BE CAREFUL...swim between the flags on beaches, if you aren't sure if it's a good area to swim. DON'T.....

    When you go out in a boat make sure you have all the life saving equipment you need.
    Life Jackets , flares etc.
    Check the boating laws and follow those. One minute you can be in calm waters the next you can be in trouble.

    Fishing is a favourite of the Aussies, even locals get caught in dangerous circumstances.
    Do not fish off rocks that are close to the water. Incoming waves are dangerous.

    Please be careful.....
