The sign says what?

The sign says what?I recently mentioned how my family spent a month in Australia. Well, we are back after having a wonderful time down under.

One of the things we enjoyed about Australia was to notice signs on roads, in parks, and all around us. Many look and read the same as in the U.S. - and many don't.

Here is a collection of signs advising how to use a toilet, to be careful of various wildlife, and other helpful tips (click on the images for larger versions):

I can't wait to go back for more Aussie fun!

    Great signs! I have seen a few funny ones in my travels as well.
    As to the to toilet one (interesting illustrations aside...) can a toilet really be "female"?

    I travel frequently to Australia, just again last week, but every time I see "male" and "female" toilets in the airport upon arrival, I'm surprised again. Perhaps what they're saying is toilets for males or females?
