Sign Language

Kununurra – We were returning to our caravan park after a flight over The Bungle Bungles (Purnululu) and as the bus pulled into our park we were greeted by the sign:

Kununurra, Kimberleyland Caravan Park  “Dead Slow, we like our customers alive”.

From the back of the bus a younger passenger groaned “Caravan parks are full of Dad jokes”.

Yamba – In the northern NSW town of Yamba there is a wonderful road sign that I consider to be a ‘sign of the times’. “No Through Road Ignore Your GPS”.

Ballina – graffiti on the highway: Abbott is an idoit (Tony Abbott was Prime Minister at the time)

Byron Bay – road safety sign: Get your hand off it, don’t text and drive

Oxley, Vic – “Welcome to our magnificent NE Region, Leave your worries behind, Not your rubbish”

Rainbow Beach – On a rather brutish garbage Truck – “Three little words: eight wheel drive”

Bumper sticker on a Nissan Patrol near Dongara:

“Eatin’ up Cruisers

Shittin’ out Prados”

Exmouth sports store – “Game fishing is going fishing on your wife’s birthday.”

And this one says it all at Pardoo Station in WA, ah yes that’s us!

  1. Lived for over 20 years on a No Through Road. Seemed no GPS ever managed to get on top of that one. Needed your sign about ignoring the GPS. Ever watched a truck and articulated trailer attempt a 50 point turn?


    1. Sat in the cab in horror when the tow truck driver who picked up our broken down Jeep and van succeeded in doing a u turn on what I’d call a blind stretch of road. But yes those guys are amazing as they just gain an inch or two more each time.
