Yeah, currently on the Gold Coast our local City Council has issued a Mosquito Alert and is in the middle of a clearing/draining and spray campaign to minimise the impact. Hopefully this will reduce the biting March flies due any day, too.

And in Tasmania you'll be surprised by billions of unpleasant little roach-like bugs responding to the unusual summer (not any unhygienic conditions).

But don't let that put you off! It's all part of your Aussie Adventure!

Closer to departure date, tell us where you're going, and we'll check out the current hazards. 

P.S:  for human pests, check out the Scamwatch site and be sure to keep anything with a RFID chip in an unscannable wallet.

However, if you take a bit of care and be aware of your surroundings, you should be okay.
