What about Scorpions? 

At our Campsite at Muloorina Station just South of Lake Eyre in April we
had 3 or 4 5cm Creamy white Scorpions running around in the leaf litter
under our feet.  ( Big Buggas ) 
        Luckily no-one got stung. I found the oval holed entrance to their 
in the sand and realised I had erected the tent on top of one of those
entrance holes. When we carefully packed up the tent next morning there
was a scorpion sitting in it's entrance hole watching us.
