    lol technically Jannico is probably kinda right. From what I've read about the levels of bureaucracy and difficulty of obtaining licences and import/exports I'd say QLD

    I don't know, the NT sounds great and if you love WA species then WA would be awesome.
    Still I like not having to screw around with crappy import licenses and messing around with other license other than Venomous snakes and Damage Mitigation.

    For climate control and ease of maintenance far north Queensland close to the coast is the best by a fairly large margin
    Open the doors/windows.... Shut the doors/windows....Turn fan on... Turn fan off... That simple most of the time
    That is assuming that you dont use air conditioning
    Inland Queensland, Darwin and NT can be great but they do get some extreme temps at times

    Two small amendments to this

    For licencing NT by a HUGE margin... so simple up there

    Air-conditioning also plays a major role
    I cannot count the number of times I have been told 'How come my snakes dont want to crawl around the house like your do"
    In nearly every instance they had air-conditioning and of course the snake doesnt want to leave his nice warm viv

    How much easier is NT licensing compared to QLD? It took me 5 mins to get my QLD license :)

    Someone told me the other day that it was hard to get licenses in QLD.

    they said they needed to provide an essay type application about care of certain species

    They must of had it wrong

    That might be for vens or for demo licences. Trent you guys also have it easy with books and paperwork. Up until they introduced the ebook we had to send our paper book in every year. Also import and export permits apparently suck to try and get in NSW

    Vic is great, not only can we keep a number of reptiles, but also native mammals etc.

    To keep vens is easy, just pay for the appropriate license, no need for courses etc!
