You'll be fine with respect to sharks. There are some beaches in South Australia close to great white breeding grounds but all other beaches are perfectly safe.

I am now officially petrified. Spiders are the one thing holding me back from making the trip!

You'll be fine. The spiders are usually stationary, plus I'm thinking you can move a lot faster then they can ;)

Been living in Oz for 7 years & did the whole travelling round in a campervan thing. Been camping lots & have yet to see a red back / funnel web, white tip or huntsman. The orbs are quite beautiful.

7 years and you haven't seen a huntsman??

He's a fake; he's getting it from an encyclopedia; you can't live for 7 years in Oz and not see a Huntsman.

Bl00dy hell! I'm a chick for one thing Majito [I must have a masculine grammatical style!] & seriously, I have never seen a Huntsman in the wild...
...mind you I have only seen one koala in the wild & I have yet to come across a Sheila or Bruce yet!

Where do you live? I'm smack in the middle of Sydney and we get huntsman spiders all over the place
