    Is it possible to visit Australia for about six months without encountering any snakes and spiders? For example, if I were to just stay within urban confines like Melbourne and Sydney??

    My mate lived there for about 6 months. She lived in her dad's basement and she was always going on about huge spiders in the basement. She had to get her dad to get rid of them every time.

    Haha I've lived in Australia all my life and I've never seen a snake so you'll be safe! I've seen my fair share of spiders, but they're not really that common, unless you're staying in some dodgy motel out in the middle of nowhere or something! Yep you'll be fine in Sydney/Melbourne
