Melbourne - Street signs

Melbourne street signs

During the week I noted a major emphasis on the street number, whenever I heard people talking about meeting in one place or another. After spending the weekend exploring town, it became quite obvious that given the length of the main streets... Numbers matter a lot. Hence, they put them really really big, to make sure you don't miss it.

Similarly, Australian street signs are quite hilarious to me. Not sure if it is the wording or the mix between pictures and words... But they are quite remarkable, don't you think? Of course in the outskirts, you get to see the classic kangaroo or the watch out for crocodiles one. Even in the city, it is quite fun.

I did a bit of research. It seems that road signs in Australia are regulated by each state's government, so I guess each state has a bit of freedom within the common framework, leading to interesting combinations, some of which are featured below - do you also find them weird? Are these like in your country?

The actual signs are remarkable I suppose because of the strange blend of colours, icons and characters.
