When you are a cute little critter but also love human flesh.

Not too bad a place to wait and rest.

That white tube on the right is a stinger net but if you're brave or foolhardy you can swim outside it.

Merry Christmas!

He's sitting idle, why doesn't he get a job?

Welcome to the top of Australia.

This is the monument on the top of Mount Kosciusko which is the tallest mountain in Australia at 2228 metres.
