    Same dangers as with any city. Watch your bags, cameras etc. It isn't impossible that they will be stolen if you're not careful. The other major thing is, in the city at night, never walk alone if it is at all possible.

    People think Australia is full of biting Bugs, and they're right. But the most threatening isn't the Black widow spider, but the Mozzi's! Make sure whereever you go you carry an insect repellant and a mozzi net to sleep in, if the windows of where you're staying don't have gauzed windows.
    ps. don't go anywhere near little red spiders!!!!

    Warning: Exposure to sunsets like this, could make you forget to leave... There's only one thing better than catching one of our summer evening sunsets... and that's witnessing another one 24 hours later.

    Warning!! If you're going to hire a car, make sure that you check it out yourself as well! Don't rely on their inspection - it could be costly!

    I was pulled by the police about 800km from Perth. On further inpsection, the police identified that there was a problem with the rear struts (that caused balding to the inside on the tires). The car wasn't impounded, luckily, and I was allowed to carry on my journey! If anything like this happens, please ensure that you bargain with the car hire firm on your return (I saved a fortune - saying that, I could have been dead!)

    Don't bring any food or wood products. Try to avoid the quarantine qeue. It's a real pain to wait an hour while the guy in front of you is getting his orchid bouquet or his wooden statue checked. It's better to leave food items at home. Australian food is edible, don't worry!

    The only thing is that there, like everywhere you visit, unsafe areas which I wouldn't walk at night, & some even wary of by day. The cultural centre, at the Alexander Library in Northbridge, can be dangerous with gangs/louts hanging around. They love to make trouble with normal people having a good time. Also, some areas in Perth city ie. Hay St Mall & Murray St Mall & it's surrounds are not so good by night. Great at day, though!! There are agencies attempting to disband the groups & move them on, which does seem to be working, but you can never be too careful!!

    Be sensible. Don't attempt to leave Perth and head for Broome expecting it to be and easy trip. It' s really long way- and Australia in Summer is really harsh. Take water and tyres and ask someone who's been there before. Also, know where you're going, don't just turn off hoping you'll get somewhere...

    Crime

    Australia's crime rate is low although the usual precautions should be taken. There are a few areas to be careful of at night such as Northbridge where there are a lot of bars and nightclubs.
