This sign was found in the magnificent Uluru nature reserve, but one thing was slightly unclear to us. How are we supposed not to take any photos if we’re not supposed to enter in the first place? We are for preserving sacred places and believe that nature must be looked after, but the least these people could do is get their order of appearance right.
Look around. There’s nothing there to take a picture of. We don’t know the standards of photography in Australia, but where we come from, a little bit of color is required.
Lizards. Realy Big Lizards
We have taken a moment to dedicate a page to lizards. Enormous lizards. The kind of lizards you can find only down under. Australia is home to five species of these giant lizards, but funnily enough, they have no fear of humans, so they are literally everywhere.
So, forget about snakes, and forget about cockroaches; lizards are the thing. Next time you come across one of these monsters across the street, walk on by.
How many names for the restroom are you familiar with? In Australia, there are several. All English-speaking country visitors have a different way of defining the sacred room, and the Ozzies have decided to adopt them all.
We assume this saves them from answering all day long, where the ladies, Shelias', restrooms, and Loos are. We are familiar with most terms here but can anyone tell me who Dunny is and how he (or she or it) ended up on this list?
The Galleried Snake
We just love the Australians for being so open about what they're going through. Big snakes are widespread in the land of Oz, and you can often find them crawling around town. However, seeing them in galleries or museums is not a sight that you come across very often.
Whoever put up this sign found it very important to share with the potential visitors the reason for the door being locked. Don't you think that a simple sign with "closed, back in 5" be enough? Couldn't they spare us from this scary information?
We all (most of us) care about animals and do everything in our power to protect and not to harm them. All zoos worldwide have signs all over, explaining how important it is to respect requests and not feed or trouble the animals.
Most people find it hard to follow, and packets of chips and cookies are regularly found hiding in the animal's habitat. This zoo owner decided to take it one step further. Not only will the animal be sick because of eating junk, but the animal is most likely to eat you. Stay away!
