queensland is worried about YOUR safety....kind of.

...but no fence.

I saw one of these suckers--they were heavy and VERY spikey. Death certainly would result if hit.

"Never go alone if bush toileting--take someone with you to watch for dingos."
Also, they must have had a few incidents with dingos and children b/c there are signs everywhere warning to keep small children within arms' reach at all times.

"Symptoms such as severe back ache, muscle cramps, sweating, nausea, and dreadful feeling of anxiety and ill health may arise 20-30 minutes after the initial sting." Wow. And this isn't even the one that can kill you.

After traveling extensively, I have to admit that Australia takes the cake when it comes to warning signs!!!! Remember the crocs and the lift?!
...and always guarding small children
