Four German travelers, including Emi (pictured), were shocked by what they experienced in the first three days of their new home in Byron Bay.
The women had to remove snakes, spiders and insects from their home, then were evacuated due to a bushfire in a nearby block.
However, later they started to have regrets when they found a small carpet python hiding behind the front door.
They also had to remove a large hunting spider and another carpet python from the living room and were startled by a huge cricket on the window.
After three days, they had to leave the house because there was a bushfire in a nearby block and joked that they were “ready to move.”
“This house is both heaven and hell. I hope everyone is safe,” Emi said.
The expat’s clip has been viewed more than a million times on TikTok and people were left shaken in the comments.
“I will go home this NIGHT,” one woman said and another wrote: “The snake? Immediately no’
“I never set foot in Australia,” commented a third and a fourth agreed: “Australia is not on my travel list because of this.”
Australians found the video hilarious and some gave their advice on how to deal with local wildlife.
“Keep the snake catcher number handy, especially in summer,” said one Byron resident.
“That’s a good warning coming from an Australian. These hunting spiders can jump, especially if they are a little smaller, they reach a good distance,” warned another.
“You need door seals for the gaps under the door. Looks like that’s how they got in. They should be at Bunnings!’ a third recommended.
“We are getting better at catching everything, don’t worry,” reassured one of the women and another, laughing: “They are also tenants, leave them alone.”
