Mosquitos, crocodiles or other dangerous animals?
No – The Atherton tablelands are thankfully free from Saltwater Crocodiles, but it is always best to check signage and follow instructions.
There are surprisingly few mosquitos on the tablelands, however there are a few fresh water crocodiles who prefer to stay well away from people.
The vast majority of snakes are Pythons and present no threat to humans. It is always best to admire wild animals from a safe distance, and allow them to move away. never try to touch or kill them.
