Western Australia is a safe place to visit for your wellness retreat, but you should be aware of potential risks if going off the beaten track. Australia has a number of dangerous animals including spiders, snakes, crocodiles, jellyfish and sharks.
It’s unlikely that you’ll encounter these, but you should exercise caution wherever you go. Look for warning signs if you want to swim in a wild pool or on a particular beach. And it’s always worth being aware of the location of your nearest hospital in case you need anti-venom after a bite. Even if you’re an experienced trekker, the Australian bush is very a different proposition, so make sure you do your research and plan well ahead of any trip.
Aside from the local wildlife, exercise your common sense. The city of Perth has a vibrant social scene, and so pickpocketing is possible in crowds. Keep your possessions close to you and don’t leave anything exposed in a parked car.
