There are many reasons tourists from all over the world visit Australia summer in December, koalas, kangaroos, coral reefs, landscapes, and wildlife. Australia is a wonderful country, but it takes a lot of courage to visit it. You might be asking yourself, “So how do the locals live?” They are probably used to living with spiders of frightening dimensions, snakes hidden in every corner, crocodiles with terrifying jaws, bats of human dimensions. Those new to these animals maybe a little scared, but don’t let that put you off: Australia shouldn’t be loved just on postcards.
