Entertaining Advice

Here is a sampling of some of the tips I have received prior to my departure:

"bring me a [koala, duck-billed platypus, kangaroo, etc]
"take a video of the first time you flush the toilet"
"there is a lot of interesting biodiversity"
"don't get eaten by aborigines"
"don't they have a poisonous variety of everything?"
"if you get stung by a jellyfish, let someone pee on it"

(that last one is actually true)

Have at least one passionfruit for every day you are there.
Try pavlova
Remember to walk on the other side of the stairs
Don't be confused when they call an appetizer an entre.
Oh and see the reef because in ten years it probably won't exist!
