What a great Site!!
(Far North Queensland)
I grew up in the Northern Territory and now live in Far North Queensland. I came across your site by chance and I must say what a great site this is. Your site should be a compulsary read for ALL tourists national or international thinking of coming to any areas in Northern Australia.
Crocodile attacks are becoming far too common. The threat of crocodile attacks is very real and it really does come down to lack of knowledge or not using commonsense. If people would listen to the locals and follow the signs that warn you of crocodiles they would be a whole lot better off.
There have been some cases where people have not listened or followed signs and have not encountered anything. They should count there lucky stars and buy a lotto ticket as they are EXTREMELY lucky.
Australia is a great and safe place to visit with a lot to see and do however, you really do need to bring your commonsense with you.
I wish you all great holidays
Don't forget your sunblock and commonsense
