Tourist Information Signs on the Main Street

Map-based directional signs, the last element of the Margaret River wayfinding signage package, were installed last week.

They provide clear tourist information whilst also sharing historical photos of the town, providing a visual understanding of how the town has evolved and changed.

These new signs along with the existing smoke-free signs (on the side of main street bins), pedestrian crossing signs and directional blades (at key locations) assist people new to Margaret River to find the amenities they need.

Created in collaboration with Undalup Association, the map-based signs also provide an understanding of traditional country (Wadandi Country) we are on, in addition to the place name for Margaret River (Wooditjup Bilya) and welcome (Kaya Kidji).

Through symbology, the signage also celebrates Margaret River as a meeting place. This is embedded in the legend and used to represent the Fearn Avenue public space.

The use of traditional place names, language and symbology allows this to continue to become part of our lexicon and serves as a great opportunity to recognise the traditional lands that Margaret River is a part of.

Thank you to all project collaborators with a special mention to Undalup Association Inc. and Margaret River & Districts Historical Society.
