Great kasianowak 2021-06-09 2:44

I expected to see a lot of dangerous reptiles and arachnids but during our 2.5 half weeks in Western Australia, Red Centre and NSW we only ever saw one big(ish) spider. I wonder if it's partly due to the time of the year (July) but then, it was not wintery-cold. Maybe I just didn't look... :-)

Default To kasianowak: Snakes

Hello Kasia

Snakes hibernate in winter which is June to August in the southern hemisphere. You will generally only see them in the far north of the country in those months. It can get down to 0c at Uluru in July, but Darwin (18-27c today) is hot all year round. 6c-17c in Brisbane today, but 18c - 23c in Cairns in far north Queensland.
