Signs and wonders in Australia

I like signs. They tell you a lot about a place. These are a selection of signs I have seen in Australia so far.

I saw several defaced road signs:

Concerns about the spread of fruit fly meant that I had to eat my apple and dump the core before I got into South Australia:

    Saw a lovely sign in the Sydney Botanical gardens imploring folk to relax, hug the trees and listen to the sounds. Official sign. Loved it.
    Really enjoying this blog btw. Have a special place in my heart for Oz land.
