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.”

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?
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.
Love those signs, much better to have a bit of humour as people seem to take more notice don’t they? Nothing wrong with Dad jokes either surely?
They’re the best.
