    Ask around if there are places you shouldn't go, because there might not be a 'do not go passed this point'-sign!

    If you are travelling in the Outback make sure you car is in good running order and bring plenty of water. This area is so empty it is scary.

    The sun is a lot stronger down in Oz. Make sure you have plenty of sunscreen or you will get a burn very quickly.

    Box Jellyfish are extremely lethal. They are found in the Northern waters of Queensland from Dec - Apr. During this time it is recommended that any swimming off the shore be done within netted areas.

    I really hope thats not to scale!!!

    Don't go swimming in crocodile infested waters. Many tourists have been taken by these creatures.

    Did you all get a 'Bird's Eye' view of the croc?

    Avoid characters like this. It's me, again, looking very camp. I'd no idea how camp I could be until I started putting pictures onto this site.

    Be careful when driving at night, sunrise and sunset... wild animals and livestock often wander across roads, not only for your safety... but also theirs... drive carefully and be prepared.

    Jelly Fish - they can be deadly near shore on the Great Barrier Reef. Swim only in nets provided on some beaches.
