Australia It is a truly beautiful and phenomenal country to travel. Sydney, Perth, Melbourne, Cairns, the Great Coral Reef, kangaroos, Brisbane, koalas ... The truth is that Australia gives for many activities and interesting visits; Not surprisingly, it is one of the largest countries in the world and with a lot of peculiarities that make it a really special place.
As I passed by Arlie Beach during my route along the East Coast from Cairns to Sydney, I dropped by the Vic Hislops Museum to check out its Great White Shark Exhibition. There I discovered what they are the most dangerous sharks in the ocean: The Great White Shark, the Tiger Shark and the Bull Shark.
Capable of reaching unlikely speeds and with devastating jaws, these three shark species They are a real threat to divers, surfers and other bathers, and of course they make you think twice before getting into the water of the Australian beaches. In any case there is an extensive and accurate control by the coast guard, with a large number of boats and patrolling helicopters and watching for any of the three friends He decides to wander around one of the beaches.
Although the number of attacks has decreased considerably in recent decades, I remember that during the 2 months I spent in Australia there were several occasions when the press echoed the attacks suffered by some surfers. They were not about deadly attacks Since the guys succeeded, don't ask me how to escape the tremendous jaws of the sharks. Of course, I assure you that every time I went into Australian waters to take a bath I could not help looking constantly from one place to another in search of a terrifying fin totally chased by the stupid but inevitable paranoia.
In the end I ended up thinking that it would have been better not to approach the damned museum of that madman; out of sight, out of mind.
