I had a friend that worked there for several years. He worked in the remote middle. He got this job when jobs were scarce. After he accepted, he asked, "So why did the last guy leave?" Turns out the last guy was camping in some even more remote place. He was sleeping and a snake bit him in his tent. He ran, and it ran after him! They think that he stumbled as he ran, which allowed the snake to get him many more times. He died.
I desperately want to go, but I'll stick to underwater or in developed areas.
