Caution! These Pigs May Bite (and other random Australian warning signs)


One of my favourite pastimes while I was in Australia was to search for all of the really rather morbid safety sings they had round. The Aussies are definitely not scared to alert you to the fact that people have died in this beauty spot and in case you don't get the message, provide lovely morbid little diagrams just to prove their point. Here is a selection of my fave crazy warnings!
Loving the little bloke being sucked into the rocks. Needless to say I got a bit freaked and did't enter the water here at all. Message received!
The poor little dude being sucked in between two huge rocks makes a reappearance. Poor guy...


And that is what happens when you look left...
Death by pine cone. No thank you!
The dangers of the beach. And this doesn't even include the wildlife! 
Massive guy, tiny cliff and even tinier trees. Still deadly in Aus. 
Cheerio!
I like that this one just gets straight to the point. 
In case you feel like walking your cat through the Australian Bush. 
So there we are, morbid health and safety signs and just plain weird signs from Australia. On a final note, I leave you with this equally strange health and safety video from that very country...


Happy Bank Holiday Weekend :) And stay safe ;)

  1. How the hell could you avoid being hit by a pine cone? If it's gonna happen, it's gonna happen! You can't go walking through the woods with a safety helmet on!

    This is brilliant!

  2. Now all I can imagine are groups of little kitties going out for a hike, seeing that sign and spotting themselves and turning around!

    When we were driving up in northern Michigan we saw a sign along the road saying "Prison area. Do NOT pick up hitch hikers". That's always amused me.

  3. I don't see any problem here, the Aussies are clearly a health and safety conscious bunch. In fact I think we could all learn a little something from them. I might start erecting some warning signs near where I live...just being a good citizen.
    Love this!
