Things That Spring to Mind Whenever Someone Mentions Australia

The Top Ten
1 Dangerous Animals

Firstly guy in the comments. I live in Sydney and of course you don't get crocodiles walking around the city. The Outback, you can experience getting kicked by a roo or get eaten by a croc or get bitten by a spider or snake.
Try surfing and maybe the water will turn red because you have been bitten by a shark. There is Australia for ya.

Spiders, snakes, jellyfish, great white sharks, dingoes, alligators, and many more animals. Even a koala can hurt you.

To correct you, there are no gators down under. But more importantly, mate, I've been to Sydney, and not once was I bitten by a venomous spider or de-legged by a saltwater crocodile. I didn't even see anything that could potentially kill me except in a zoo. The most dangerous creature I ran into was a seagull.

I'm Aussie and life in red dust evrywere and I hate veggi mite to the bone! Ps about the Dangerous animals there lots but once you know what to do with 20 reddies (Aussie slang between me and my mate for red backs) you're fine. Considering I started laughing at reddies at 6.

Steve was cool. Bindi drives us nuts. Just every thing given to her and little over the top bro robert. Following dad's foot steps. God no.
