    Default Size of Australia comparison to Europe.

    For those Members, who have never been to OZ,we are an Island,and this gives you an idea, of the size,compared to Europe.

    That's not an island, that's a continent.

    Although Australia also meets the definition of an island (a piece of land surrounded by water), it is large enough to be considered its own continent.
    So by definition,it can be considered both.

    LOL
    It is a very large island isn't it? It definitely dwarfs most of Europe. How long would it take to do a complete "walk about"? LOL

    Suspect visitors to your Country may be as confused as to it's true size as they often are when visiting Canada, DSTM - huge smile!

    (Can honestly remember when relatives from England actually packed a suitcase when they heard we were driving 200 miles to show them our Canyon. To us, it's a day trip).

    Wonder what it costs to fly from one side of your Country to the other? Here, it costs considerable more to fly across Canada than, for instance, to Europe.

    Holy **** Doug.

    I'm very well educated in such things (or so I thought).

    I have no words to say as I keep scrolling back to your original post that shows Australia devouring all of Europe.

    BTW- Did I ever tell you that I want to move to AU or NZ?

    Seth grumbles at the lack of details and continues to pursue a purely Canadian technical support site.

    Seth, suspect a "purely Canadian technical support site" may well be impossible - if one believes my American friends (grin!) - who maintain we "Canadians are so laid-back even computer problems don't cause gray hair!"

    Australia is, without doubt, one of the places that I wish we'd visited when we were jaunting around - drat, drat! But then again, apparently you've got HUGE snakes there, Doug - eeeeeek!

    I have never seen that pic before - thats amazing in terms of the scale of Australia - I knew it was big, but I never saw a comparison that put it to scale like that Doug - Amazed

    Seth moving to AU or NZ - isn't that a huge climate change, Seth I pictured you wearing those huge lumberjack jackets and arctic clothing lol

    When I retire I want to move to Canada - I love the cold

    Seth's moving over to Oz as he freely admits he just couldn't hack it in West Yorkshire with being a complete soft ****.

    Plus he'd be afraid of strolling though areas like these rolling moors where I might be lurking.

    Not really huge,but deadly,Mara. They dont bother you, unless you provoke them, or surprise them.Here is one that was caught in an Electiric fence, here recently, that was eating the new born Lambs.This is extremely rare.

    OZ, is still the best Country,Dalo
    You seldom see snakes.
    When Mara told me, Brown Bears walk past her house in Canada,Daily,I was in shock to hear it.Such a potentially deadly wild animal outside your house.
    What does worry me here, is in the Gardens in Sydney,we have deadly Funnel Web Spiders.They are aggressive, and can jump short distances.
    I did post that Snake pic somewhere,previous,but what site escapes me.
    What amazes me,is New Zealand hasn't any snakes.

    Bears are very dangerous I agree - I would not like to end up being on the receiving end of a bear tearing my arm off and hitting me with the soggy end LMAO
    as for spiders and snakes for such small creatures they are hard to avoid most of the time - at least you can see bears.

    I would rather take my chances with a bear then a spider, bee or wasp. I'm extremely allergic to insect venom. Different creatures for different people.

    Agreed.I would not like to meet a Bear,that's having a bad day.LOL
    These are our 10 most deadly creatures,but rarely would come into contact with them,unless you went looking for them.
    People over dramatize,but chances of being attacked are very rare.

    Yeah they are all really bad - I read or watched on a geography channel or something that sea snakes are the most poisenous kind
    Agreed in the fact that they are not just roaming about and you would be hard pressed to just see any near your house for example.
    Still - there are animals in nearly every continent that can kill people, native or not they are there.
