Cape York – Magnificent beaches, but no one in the water.

30.04.14

Life in this paradise really is queer. Fantastic palm-fringed beaches, but no one goes for a swim, as crocodiles lurk everywhere in the waters. Going snorking in the 30°C warm water is only possible wearing a wetsuit; Anything else would be suicide, as the 5cm big box jellyfish are absolutely deathly.

 And as everyone can probably imagine, under water even the tiniest sharks seemed gigantic to us!
Consequently, Australians have long lost that desire to bathe and take a swim we all know and love.
