@hingehead,
It was in reference to the roads. It was dirt from Camooweal to Mt Isa, and often under a metre of water.

Even the bloody horses are dangerous in Oz.

Quote:
Horses killed more people in Australia in recent years than all venomous animals combined, research has shown.

The University of Melbourne's Dr Ronelle Welton examined hospital admissions data and coronial records.

From 2000 to 2013, horses were responsible for 74 deaths.

Bees and other stinging insects were the next most dangerous, causing 27 deaths, followed by snakes, which also claimed 27 lives but landed fewer people in hospital.

Spiders were not responsible for any deaths during that time, the research showed

@izzythepush,
Funnily enough it seems that the tourists cop it disproportionately, we've recently had an elderly french couple die from irukandji stings and there seems to be regularly space reports about crocodiles eating backpackers. Guess the critters have seen Crocodile Dundee and stay away from the locals.

@hingehead,
It's not the same league, but I never get stung by nettles, not since I was a kid anyway.

@izzythepush,
Kind of adds weight to my theory - I've only ever been stung by nettles in Italy.

PS you should look up 'using gympie leaves as toilet paper'

@hingehead,
That sounds horrible. I don't trust anything that starts with gymp.
