Australia: I think not....
 
I'm interesting.

And I've been fortunate enough to travel quite a bit.

I've never made Australia. So when the wife said she'd really like to see it someday, I started doing some research.

Everything in Australia will kill you. You can't put underwear on without shaking it first.

Eff dat.

And they hate Americans. Better to fly in and make your way to New Zealand where they still love us and they have safer snorkling. :D

For your examination....

I used to think The Croc Hunter went to exotic locales to find exotic creatures.

Nope.

Sh!T in your bathtub will kill you.

The only thing safe from Australia is Olivia Newton John, and I'm pretty sure SHE doesn't stay there.

I'm sorry but I have to differ. Kylie Minogue. *drools*

My oldest and her then husband spent a month in Australia 4-5 years ago on vacation. What I learned from them:

1. Yes, there are things everywhere that can eff you up
2. Overall the food is pretty bad & tasteless (mutton - YUCK)
3. The people are fun & friendly to hang out with
4. Those Aussie effer's can consume serious amounts of alcohol

I'd still like to visit someday though...

But Benny, Koalas are safe, right?

Bull.

Better than any UFC card, look for the vicious elbows and Gracie mount here....

We won't even get started on the snakes...

We've been hiking in the desert around Gold canyon in AZ. My wife has been saying the same thiings about our surroundings here. Snakes, scorpions, fire ants, she gets squeamish when the trails get narrow and she has to walk near bouldors or brush.
Two years ago my youngest son stepped right over a rattle snake on the Perralta trail and scared my sister pretty bad. I got good photos of it slithering away.
