Slightly strange question but is it generally safe for women to travel around Australia alone? Obviously I know that common sense is always needed when travelling but would like to hear other womens' thoughts/experiences on this.
I've travelled extensively around Australia and have never had any safety issues. Obviously you need to be sensible and aware of your surroundings at all times, but I feel that of all the countries I have travelled in Australia is by far the safest.
I agree with the above, I've never had any problems at all while travelling here. Obviously some of the main cities have their share of crime and you always need to be on your guard - especially at night time - but overall it's not really something to be overly concernced about.
