Talk about a chill experience!  Too bad they had such instant reception upon arrival, to receive cell phone reception!

Imagine the same experience, then on purpose their cell phone provider did not let them back on the grid for another week!

 

This adventure seems really awesome!
As long as there are no winding, sideways and freak me out snakes you al' talk about in OZ!

 

The pictures are fabulous!!

@ softeyes - please just ignore the 'bulldust' about snakes in OZ. It is only on very rare occasions that people get bitten by snakes; and then only because they were trying to kill the snake; so ofcourse the poor creature defended itself! Unlikely you will see a snake out on a walking trail because they get out of your way and quickly slither out of sight. So come to awesome Australia! Nothing to worry about (except, perhaps, occasional drop-bears) and after a long hot day out on the trail you will always find a pub to get a good cold beer!   :)

I agree snakes are not a problem, because the spiders eat most of them.

That's not fair Nick, that guy moved here from Australia lol.  And, he wasn't trying to kill a spider, he was checking the Octane levels at his new fuel station.

Think OZ is bad, try living in Florida anywhere near nature.  This place is/was full of so many creepy crawly snakes, bugs etc. that it was uninhabitable until humans came and drained off all the water into canals.  Growing up here in the Seventies and Eighties was quite exciting and not only for the creepy crawly's in nature, the ones on the streets were just as bad lol.  Seriously though, the swamp is a terrible place to encounter these things as they are super hard to see, and, like the Rain forest they are everywhere.  Water Moccasins are very aggressive and will chase a person - unlike many other snakes, don't ask how I know, not by reading about it lol.

It was quite habitable for the wild life then man came along and ruined it.

@ Beel, my pleasure mate. I am constantly on the lookout for anything to help the Aussies on BC feel at home.....and to at least try and educate the rest of the world about the best country on earth.
