At first, Australia may seem quite homelike to you - but this misapprehension can cost your life. The greatest source of danger is: you yourself - and that's what I'm starting this book with. Further, it's about dangers posed by other people, by Australia's cliché-dangers (animals, climate, natural disasters) and from getting around. As to not deter you entirely from traveling in Australia, this book closes with my most beautiful experiences.
Here's a summary of the most important advice for readers impatient or just browsing:
1.) Wear sunscreen like a second skin.
2.) Keep distance from wild animals.
3.) Keep distance from where wild animals dwell (Which is pretty much everywhere).
4.) At night, refrain from driving your car outsides of settlements. There's nothing to see anyway - and if you do, it's likely to be too late.
5.) Don't listen to racists. they're just mean people.
6.) Take more water with you than you think you need. You'll need it.
7.) Always stay with the car. Rescue teams spot stranded cars earlier than lost wanderers.
8.) Marmite is great. It might tastes like the opposite of Nutella, but it helps to repel bloodsucking insects.
9.) Read warning signs in detail. Someone paid for them - just to save you.
10.) If it's risky at home, it's risky any place else.
11.) Tell someone where you go and when you plan to be there, then inform them once you got there.
12.) Always pack a jumper and a piece of cord.
