Australia is one of my absolute favorite places to visit.  It’s a big land with few people.  It’s home to several world-class cities, and many small town curiosities.  It’s a place where North American travelers will feel vaguely at home, in a country that speaks a language resembling English.

Among the many things I love about Australia, I’ve discovered that it must be the world’s best place for signspotting.  By signspotting, I’m referring to discovering and photographing the many humorous signs that pepper the roads and buildings in this laid-back country.  Here is a sampling of some of my favorite examples of classic Australian signage.

Beach?  Road?  What’s the difference?

What is the funniest sign you have seen lately?
