A group of four women from Germany were ‘ready to move out’ of their new home in Australia home just days after moving in after a series of frightening encounters.
In the first three days living in their new Byron Bay home, the German travellers were confronted with snakes, huge bugs, spiders and bushfires.
People from all over the globe were shocked by the friends’ experience while Aussies joked they had been given a proper Australian welcome.
‘POV: Four girls finally found a house to live in Australia,’ one of the women, Emi, said in a video.
She showed the four friends excitedly moving their bags into furnished, light-filled home.

The women had to remove snakes, spiders and bugs from their home then were evacuated as there was a bushfire on a neighbouring block
However they later started to have regrets when they found a small carpet python hidden behind the front door.
They also had to removed a large huntsman spider from the living room as well as another carpet python and were spooked by a huge cricket on the window.
After three days, they had to leave the home as there was a bushfire on a neighbouring block and joked they were ‘ready to move out’.
‘This house is heaven and hell at the same time. Hope everyone’s safe though,’ Emi said.
The expat’s clip racked up more than one million views on TikTok and had people reeling in the comments.
‘I’d fly back home that NIGHT,’ one woman said and another wrote: ‘The snake? Immediately no’
‘I am never setting foot in Australia,’ a third commented and a fourth agreed: ‘Australia is not on my travelling list because of that’.
Aussies thought the video was hilarious and some offered their advice on how to deal with the local wildlife.
‘Keep the snake catcher’s number handy especially in summer,’ one Byron local said.
‘Fair warning coming from an Aussie. Those huntsman spiders can jump, especially if there a tad smaller, they get some good distance,’ another warned.
‘You need some door seals for the gaps under the door. Looks like that’s how they got in. They should be at Bunnings!’ a third recommended.
‘You get better at catching everything, don’t worry,’ one reassured the women and another laughed: ‘They are tenants too, leave them alone’.
