If you’re ever……

if you’re ever up Queensland way be prepared to see some fun things.

These are from trips in 2009  – 2012 –  2015

Rockhampton –  sometimes called the beef capital of Australia –  slap bang on the Tropic  of Capricorn.   A  fair way from anywhere.

Tully –  920 kms further north up the Bruce Highway.  In the Wet Tropics so it gets wet a lot 🙂

Cooktown – a further 450 kms  north up on the Cape York Peninsular is a place of it’s own. And there too you will see some very unexpected things.  

But where ever you go and what ever you do just make sure you have enough fuel in your tank because when you’re out and about (like at the caves in Chillagoe 2015) it’s not a good feeling when you come across a sign like this 🙂

  1. Definitely some fun things.
    I cannot imagine the rainfall that Tully received in that record year. We don’t get that much in inches let alone metres.
    Smiling at the ‘how far is it ‘ signs too.
    Thank you.


  2. We all remember the kids, don’t we. My diplomatic little brother used to remark, “It’s still a long way to breakfast, isn’t it?


  3. Those are such fun signs!!! It’s amazing to see signs like this and wonder who made them because you just wanna give them a pat on the back for their creativity, small things but makes the long drives at ease 🙂


    1. That sure was some funny and scary signs, I seriously doubt I could have gotten that many kilomtres out of even a full tank in my old car. I too was waiting for: “Are we there yet?”


  4. I had to laugh at the first two signs, which reminded me when my kids were small and we travelled in Europe and 5 min after leaving home they were already asking “are we there yet?”
    And wow that was a lot of rain! I don’t think my petrol tank would enable me to travel 560km without filling up, a scary trip! Thanks Cathy, great signs


  5. The signs remind me of two things. First are the old Burma Shave signs along the highway going to my grandparents’ house. The second is being a teacher on field trip day with the kids saying “Is it lunch yet?” as we were lining up to get on the bus first thing in the morning. – Margy


  6. Gotta love the funny signs! Thanks for sharing this part of the world with us! I bet that sign is disturbing to many folks knowing it’s so far to the petrol station!

    It’s awesome to see you at ‘My Corner of the World’ this week! Thanks for linking up.


  7. Cathy, the first few sign boards made me crack -up. Thank god I’m not alone in this!

    Lovely post. Thank you for sharing with us on #WW
