G'day went for a burl up in the hills today and got to thinking we all have road signs perquliar to our States Territories and countries ( some just perquliar ) and thought we could post some of our local ones. Ill start with this one that every australian will recognise.

Great idea for a thread! Also all Kangaroo ahead signs have bullet holes for some reason. Perhaps people can guess at what they mean also? Could get some interesting responses.

I thought that sign meant "Good Kangaroo hunting for the next 3 km's"

We have the same ones here for deer.

I tried to find out more about it's history and all but couldn't find any info?
Any body local out there care to give a history lesson?
This could be an awesome thread!
I'd say try and keep the pix to ones "YOU" actualy took.
While out riding the scoot would be even better!

Me and the Missus went to Cambodia last year and ate at this joint. Had to wonder though how often we did actually eat rat or dog.

my best assumption is that it led to some kind of quarantine village back in the colonial days kind of a one way road for some folks.
