  • Don’t drive into rural Australia without taking necessary precautions, such as bringing food, water, and plenty of gas
  • Wear sunscreen when holidaying, as Australia’s sun is unforgiving
  • Have a well-planned itinerary for getting between regions as travel times can be daunting
  • Avoid traveling in Australia’s northern regions during the wet season
  • Always swim between the red and yellow flags when swimming at the beach
  • Australia has some of the most poisonous animals in the world, including snakes, spiders, and marine creatures; it is best to stay away from local wildlife, if you are in anyway unsure
