Jellyfish: Nov-March is “stinger” season in most tropical areas of Australia. Swim between the red and yellow flags, and make sure you read signs before entering the water. If you choose to swim during this season wear a full body lycra suit. If you do get stung alert local coastguards, pour vinegar onto the affected area and call triple 000 for an ambulance.
When withdrawing cash from ATM try to go inside the bank. Beware of withdrawing cash from cash points on pedestrian walkways. Try to withdraw small sums and don’t flash your cash around even in the bank.
