Some parochial Queensland residents and forum users keep on mentioning that the sunny state is God's own country.

After some research I have found out why.

Most of God's nasty creatures live in Queensland!!!!

King Browns and Taipans, the Fierce Snake and the venomous Sea Snakes. Then there are the Man'O'War Jellyfish' and other nasties of the deep, not to mention Man-eating Crocodiles . And then there are Hungry Dingoes, Cane Toads(Hi Trevor!), Midgees, Sandflies, Mosquitoes, Marshflies, dangerous Cassowaries, Deadly Stinging Nettles and Red Killer Ants.

Have I left anything out?



ROTFLMAO



Leaving for the Flinders in the next hour and won't be online for a week. So I will let the rest of you discuss this grave matter.



Cheers

Willem, you forgot to mention the worst of all the nasty things that "that place" has to offer. When you get someone that originated up that way, then they had the privelege of residing
in other states of this great country for a while & now find themselves back in their home state, ( that place ) they become a bit more narrow minded & venemous & can actualy be unreasonable most of the time.

There is one such inhabitant who is unreasonable ALL the time

The condition they suffer is called jealousy & can only be cured by these people once again leaving their home state & taking up residence in any part of Oz with the exception of cane toad & prickly pear infested Qld.

Queensland would be great!!! All you have to do is get rid of all the Queenslanders and it would be fine. (If you like floods 6 months of the year and drought the other 6 months.)

I agree with Willems sentiments but to be really picky...."Man of War jellyfish" are everywhere....they are otherwise known as Bluebottles....
I think Willem means Sea Wasp or Box Jellyfish...???

Actally I meant to say...I agree that Queensland is Gods own country...
I got transferred back to Sydney and now the kids...(adult age kids...) don't want to go back, even thought they are born Gold Coasters. So, in retirement, I have to stay in this S***hole because SWMBO doesn't want to leave the kids....great for them, but as soon as it suits them, they'll be off and leave us....then maybe we can get back..In the meantime, I'll have to settle for regular trips to "GOC"

Hi Wilem
Stand to be corrected.
I live in Gods Own Country
.Been here to have a look?
The only thing you have to watch out for is ( THE TOURIST ) The OZ's, who are so busy looking at real mountains and rivers that run clear, and then forget that other people also use the road ,Not to mention the people that are confused as to which side of the road they should be driving on.
Been out of Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide. Ql,and is still my choice.
A few hours out to the west and in your are in the country.
Check out the Tractor at Timbour, the Boondooma homestead?
PastMitchell where they break up the road trains. Charleville. Now you are getting there.
Snakes flies things that my jump out at you in the night, all those creepy crawly things. Bloody fantastic. Helps keeps the Tourists away eh.
Why do I keep going back?
It must be the flies that makes me mad!
