Australian Spiders Gallery

Both spiders and insects are invertebrates, but spiders are not insects, they are distant ancestors but they are not the same type of animal with a handful of characteristics that set them apart

Spiders are the most widely distributed venomous creatures in Australia, with an estimated 10,000 species inhabiting a variety of ecosystems. Even though spiders live around us, from our urban centres to the bush, bites are infrequent.  They are less life-threatening than snakes or sharks!

Funnel Web Spider

A May 2015 photo of a funnel web spider clinging to the bark of a gum tree in the Palmer river district of Cape York, Queensland, Australia. One needs to be aware when strolling through this remote bush, it would not be nice to be bitten by one of these scary spiders

Orb spider, Lord Howe Island, majestic and scenically wonderful, is part of New South Wales, Australia

Lord Howe Island is a sub-tropical destination and scenically superb. The Island is an irregularly crescent-shaped volcanic remnant in the Tasman Sea between Australia and New Zealand and the South Pacific Ocean is just north. It is 600 kilometres directly east of mainland Port Macquarie, and about 900 kilometres from Norfolk Island
