I have seen signs in the outback warning of no fuel for 500 km.as that can actually avoid life threatening situations but this sign? You will find this sign on the infamous Bloomfield Track that leads from Cape Tribulation to Bloomfield, also locally known as Wujul Wujul.No overtaking allowed on this bridge between Cape Tribulation and Cooktown,( that is only one car wide anyway).This sign hangs halfway between the Stuart Highway and Cape Crawford's Heartbreak Hotel on the southern side of the road but its exact location has been lost, if you find it please let us know!We spotted this sign in a bar, you can order this sign and heaps of others at For those who don't recognize the animal in the middle, it is a wombat.Every country has signs, but of course in a country as amazing as Australia, the signs are just that little bit different again. If you see any more amazing signs on your travels in Australia, make sure you send us a pic!
