Are there a lot of spiders in Australia?

And when I say spiders I mean the giant, poisonous tarantula like kind. I'm visiting Australia this summer, but if there are a lot of spiders like that I can't go. My friend said that they are known for having a lot of tarantulas there. She even said that there are some that hide under the sand and are very poisonous.

I am EXTREMELY scared of spiders. But I went to Australia a couple months ago and saw no spiders at all. You should not worry about anything.. just go and have fun! (;

I live in Australia, I have never seen a tarantula in my life. We also have huntsman spiders, red back spiders etc... It is very rare to see them. You should be more worried about going near koalas than seeing a spider. Have fun in Australia!
