Backpackers Guide to Local Safety & Health

Tourist season is upon us, and over the next few months, Australia will experience its peak of visitors, eager to enjoy our beaches, nightlife and native flora and fauna. Despite our nation being a fantastic place for backpackers to visit, as with any country, Australia is still home to risks and dangers that can seriously catch a visitor unawares and potentially cut a holiday short.

Recognising this, Pro-Visual Publishing has released the 2012 edition of the Backpackers Guide to Local Safety & Health. Now in its third year, this guide is an invaluable tool to help educate visitors on ways to keep them safe during their stay in Australia. The information is concise, easy to follow and approved by the Backpacker Youth Tourism Advisory Panel. Over the next few weeks, thousands of tour operators, backpacker accommodations, Internet cafes, YMCAs and tourism info offices throughout Australia will be receiving their free copy, with additional copies available upon request.

The topics covered in the guide range from the obvious such as sun safety, water safety, marine stinger and shark safety, avoiding dehydration and vaccinations, to commonly overlooked topics such as drink-spiking, safety for women travelling alone and nightlife dangers. Despite the topics focusing on serious issues that can and do affect visitors, ultimately, the topics are presented in a way that's not meant to alarm, but to inform.

"Australia is a fantastic location for Backpackers across the globe to visit, but it's important for visitors to take heed of the local laws and safety guidelines throughout their stay. With our latest release of the Backpackers Guide to Local Safety & Health, we at Pro-Visual are aiming to help make any visit to Australia a safe and enjoyable one. I would like to thank all of the sponsors of this guide, who have made it possible for it to be produced and also distributed to the industry free of charge." said John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.

Recipients of the Guide are also provided with the opportunity to enter a competition in which the best entry wins a $5,000 dollar holiday voucher! (See terms and conditions)
