Dingo Wild

German nationals settling in Australia sometimes make the mistake of thinking that our country’s a tame place outside the cities, just because we German English Australia Translation Servicehave some of the best German NAATI Translators anywhere. While that latter may be true the former certainly isn’t, as a German tourist recently discovered on Fraser Island off the Queensland Sunshine Coast.

The island is around 120 kilometres long and 16 kilometres wide on average. It is the largest sand island in the world and has been a World Heritage Site since 1992. Natural ground cover includes eucalyptus woodlands, peat swamps, sand dunes and coastal heaths. Walk carefully, or you might tread on a salt water crocodile.

This achingly lovely landscape is also home to a large variety of wildlife, including small mammals, reptiles and amphibians, and a large variety of birds. Top of the food chain are dog-like Dingo’s that weigh in at 13kg, but have been recorded up to twice that size. They hunt in splintered packs and have been observed taking down sheep and even heifers.

Now while there may well have been signs warning of the presence of these creatures, there certainly is no official translation of these for German speaking people as far as we are aware. German English Australia Translation ServiceThat’s likely why the tourist wandered off alone, and fell asleep before he was attacked by a pair of Dingo’s that caused some fairly serious injuries.

We are German-English translators (and vice versa) and not wildlife experts. However we do know enough to understand that our Australian bushland is certainly not like any European city park. We wish all our German visitors and immigrants a hearty welcome, but please do take care on and off our roads too.
