One year in Australia

For your reports/images, made outside Europe and the "Mediterranean" countries. Not to be too narrow minded and limited to our European/Mediterranean herps.

Darwin in the NT and Daintree River in northern Queensland are as good as certainties for saltwater crocs. The best region I know of for coastal taipans is around Cooktown, but they can turn up pretty much anywhere in coastal Queensland, though are very difficult to find in almost any area. Death adders are a little easier to find and seem to be in reasonable numbers in the high, rainforest areas such as Atherton Tablelands, Paluma Range behind Townsville and even Magnetic Island off Townsville or further afield try Kakadu in NT. Centralian pythons should be pretty easy in the gorges and rocky outcrops to the west of Alice Springs. Good luck.

Thanks !
Not sure I'll be able to go until Alice Springs because of the money I will spend trying to see Great white sharks and Killer whales (New Zealand).
But I'll be able to go until Darwin, for sure !

Thanks a lot !
