Travel Risks in Australia

Australia’s biggest threat is Natural Disasters, such as riptides, UV Exposure, and dangerous animals / insects.

It is advised that you don’t go into the sea alone, and let someone know where you are if you’re heading to the coast.

It is a very safe country regarding crime, but be wary of your belongings and never leave them unattended.

Exercise normal caution when going out late at night, as you would in any other country.
