If you believe the movies though, Australia is also a deadly country, as Serial Killers and deadly animals are constantly roaming the countryside looking for victims/prey. There may also be evil spirits, zombies, and aliens down under, so maybe we're not so keen on visiting there after all.
The movies below all do a great job of capturing both the beautiful and terrifying sides of the land down under.
- Some of the films on this list are co-productions with other countries.
- Some of the films on this list far more towards the Thriller side of things than they do Horror.
- We include Saw here because it was originally an Aussie flick, and it deserves a mention.
If you're looking for a proper introduction to the world of Australian Horror, then any of the movies in our Top Six will do you right. We'd urge you to start with Wolf Creek, as it's probably the "best" of them, but they're all excellent watches.
Most of the rest of the movies below represent Australian Horror very well, each in their own way, so why not just enjoy them all!

*Most of the links go to Amazon so that you can stream or grab yourself a copy of the movies; our review of the movie (when applicable); or in the case of some of the older & more obscure titles, IMDB, because they simply aren't available to stream or purchase.
