Do you dream of hopping with kangaroos, snuggling with koalas, or swimming with dolphins? How about sleeping with snakes, splashing with crocodiles, or dining with spiders the size of your face? Despite the stunning beauty of the Oceania continent, there is a great deal of danger and real threats to your wellbeing that should be taken seriously.
Aside from the hostile nature and wildlife, however, Oceania is home to countries with some of the lowest crime rates in the world. So long as you do your homework before you go, and you know how best to handle rogue wildlife, large insects, and scorching UV rays, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have the trip of a lifetime.
