Australia's exotic - and sometimes vicious - wildlife is an oft cited characteristic of the island continent, with Australia's sharks taking a large portion of the conversations. Sharks, however, perhaps are more feared than what they deserve, since in the majority of states have very few recorded cases over the past 221 years.
This FACT indicates the total number of recorded unprovoked shark attack cases from 1791 to 2018, in each Australian state and territory. There is huge disparity in the numbers, with Queensland and New South Wales leading the tally by far. The Australian Capital Territory has a count of zero since it has no costal beaches.
