Corporate Talks Adelaide. Australia Is About to Experience a 'Bonanza' of Deadly Spiders, Experts Warn. During a devastating and unprecedented bushfire season, Australians in Sydney and the surrounding central coast were practically begging for rain.
A "bonanza" of deadly spiders was not exactly part of that request, and yet experts at the Australian Reptile Park strongly suspect that's what's coming. "We are issuing a message of warning to the public as recent wet weather conditions followed by hot days have created perfect conditions for funnel-web spiders to thrive," reads a video post on the park's Facebook page. It sounds terrifying, although, as the video's title "FUNNEL WEB SEASON IS HERE" suggests, it's not an entirely new experience for Sydney-siders.

Last asylum seekers held in Papua New Guinea detention centre released. Eighteen men who were held in isolation and poor conditions in Papua New Guinea’s Bomana immigration detention centre have been released.
In August, PNG authorities arrested 52 men who had previously been detained on Manus Island on behalf of the Australian government after seeking asylum by boat. As of January this year, just 18 of the 52 men remained in the detention centre, after the others had been removed having agreed to return to their country of origin. Many of those who were detained had spent up to seven years in Australia’s offshore detention system, but say the conditions inside Bomana broke them into signing the agreements. The 18 men were released last night and moved to three boutique hotels in Port Moresby, Guardian Australia understands.
Refugee advocate and Port Moresby Catholic priest Father Giorgio Licini told Guardian Australia he had attempted to visit one of those who had been detained on Thursday night. “The fact that they’re out is fantastic. “They’re broken.

It’s beyond a joke, it’s beyond belief,” he told Guardian Australia. “I’m a prime minister for standards,” Morrison said at the time.
