Tips for staying safe on a camping trip

Staying safe from wildlife

  • Don’t leave out food that might attract animals
  • Keep tents zipped and doors closed
  • Beware of inland bodies of water which may contain crocodiles
  • Wear sturdy shoes and make a lot of noise when you are walking in grass or bush. Snakes and spiders don’t want to come into contact with you either.

Staying safe from bush-fire

  • While in national parks and free campsites, check the rules on open fires.
  • Follow the specific fire bans especially during the dry months.
  • It is illegal to collect firewood and kindling in national parks. 

All you need to know about Australia’s insects:

Australia’s deadly world of arachnids, reptiles and insects is an off-putting factor for many travellers.  Many people on a Perth to Broome coach tour also may feel the same. As such, let us put the record straight. Let’s debunk a few myths about what might lurk in the long grass of your new backyard.

  • Common Spiders

Here are some facts about spiders: Yes, some of them are big. Big and crawly. Yes, some of them are poisonous. But, Arachnids have not been responsible for any fatalities in Australia for decades.

  • Funnel Web Spiders

However, take care not to get bitten by Funnel Web Spider because it’s one of the deadliest spiders in the world. There are forty different species of Funnel Web Spiders. If you suspect you have been bitten by one of them, dash over to A&E. 

Signs when bitten by a Funnel Web Spider are as follows;

– Tingling sensations around the lips 

– Sweating 

– Nausea 

– Vomiting 

– Headache 

– High blood pressure 

  • Black Widow Spiders

The Black Widow Spider does not bite unless it is provoked in any way. As this is a very poisonous spider, get anti-venom as quick as possible. 

  • Snakes

Snakes are a deadly menace and it is these unforgiving inhabitants you need to be mostly wary of. Australia is home to seven species of the 10 most poisonous snakes in the world. Among the most feared are the Eastern Brown snake and the Australian Tiger snake. Worse still is the not-at-all misleadingly named ‘Death Adder.’

  • Jumper Ants

The jumper ants are venomous, scavenging carnivores.  They are responsible for more deaths in Tasmania than sharks, snakes, wasps and spiders combined.  However, only four Tasmanians have died of a Jack Jumper sting in the last 30 years. As such don’t let your irrational fears spoil your wonderful holiday.
