Animals

Australia is home to many beautiful, yet wild animals. Unfortunately, many of these are drawn to the warmth of the bitumen and can often be seen laying about on the tar.

Most snakes, lizards and frogs are far too small to cause any damage to your vehicles, but many are already endangered and should be avoided if safely possible. Our larger animals such as wild Brumbies and kangaroos can cause major damage to your vehicle and extra care needs to be take when driving at night on many of the roads around Queensland.
