massive !

Oz is THE country of poisonous/dangerous/nasty creatures ! There's a reason Britain sent its convicts to one of the most inhospitable places on earth !

You'll encounter widows on your first day at work, no doubt !

Sorry, I'm just being real !

Go to a good hypnotherapist !

When I was there for a holiday for 3 weeks I saw 4 red backs,a funnel web and a white tail, all in suburban gardens :biggrin:

Only saw one funnelweb when I was there and that was in a zoo. Plenty of redbacks but unlikely that they'll bother you. Huntsman spiders are the ones that you'll see most of more than likely and if you don't like spiders they'll be pretty scary but they're actually harmless. Personally I loved the fauna of Oz and the fact that most of it was poisonous was a bonus. Maybe try hypnotherapy cos you're going to meet a heap of creepy crawlies out there.
