Iconic Road Signs of Australia: A Travel Photo

If you explore Australia by road, you are bound to come across many of its road signs that warn you of animal crossings and which request you to slow down or take care of themselves and the wildlife. These could warn you of saltwater crocodiles if you are near a swamp, a kangaroo crossing, a koala crossing, a cassowary crossing or any other of Australia’s famous wildlife. I think these road signs are an integral part of the way Australia moves and are something you would never see anywhere else in the world as this wildlife is endemic to Australia. Given that Australia has a large road network and that there are many bushlands, swamps and forests, you will see these road warning signs pretty often while driving.

Famous Road Signs of Australia
I saw this one in photo while exploring the rainforests of Kuranda in Northern Queensland. It warns drivers of a Cassowary crossing. Cassowaries are large and aggressive land birds that are found in the forests of Australia. These signs aim towards protecting the rapidly decreasing endemic wildlife of this vast country. The next time you are in Australia and hit its roads, keep an eye out for its iconic road signs.
