Abstract/Summary Travelling into the 'other' can provide both a sense of adventure and a feeling of fear. Urban Australians venturing into the outback, or rural Australians entering the cities of Sydney or Melbourne, are sometimes prone to concerns for safety: unfamiliarity breeds uncertainty, and uncertainty strips away the security of the values, modes of thought, and behaviours of normalised life.
