A big Island Down South

A Land with Mountains, Deserts, Forests, Oceans Cities and More
The Australian landscape varies from the fiercest, harshest most barren deserts, to the lushest farmland, the most spectacular rain forests, fantastic beaches and wonderful Aboriginal sites with ancient rock carvings. There are natural caves and waterfalls in the mountains and snow fields perfect for winter sports and for the hiker there are many great choices. The cities offer great entertainment and places to eat.
Beware of Dangers. Australia has some Wild Places
Australia has some notable dangers which the intrepid traveler needs to be aware of. There are crocodiles in the waters up North and various snakes Australia wide, some of which have a lethal bite. Traveling in the desert is not without risk. Adequate preparations must be made before the trip. Because of the immense distances with no shops, service stations or water for hundreds of kilometers travelers should let the authorities or family or friends know where they are going to be, and when they are expected to arrive at their destination. In this modern era it is usually possible to stay in touch via radio or phone. Much of Australia, believe it or not, does not have phone or internet coverage. We are working on it. When traveling in the outback be sure that you keep in touch so that if you break down or get sick someone will know about it and you can get help.
