guarding your property

  • Do not take with you un necessary valuables or documents. They will be safer at your hotel.
  • Cash is never a good idea. Carry only small amounts needed for small purchases. You can pay almost every where with a credit card. Alternatively you can use a traveller cheque.
  • Keep your wallet in a pocket not easily accessible. The pocket at the back of you trousers will be the less safe.
  • Wear shoulder bags and cameras with the straps across your body.
  • Don't leave tempting objects in a vehicle.

personal safety

  • Avoid poorly lit streets.
  • Visit the parks during the day.
  • Travel in the train in the first carriage or in the one with the blue lantern which has a guard.
  • Taxis are always the safest way of travelling around.
  • Hitch-hiking in Australia is not a good idea, unless you are in the middle of no-where, starving to death.
  • Remote towns they do not have a night life. Try to reach your destination before the night fall.

You ask too much if you expect a police officer to speak a foreign language, unless is not a foreigner.
