Guide signs

Guide Signs inform and advise road users of direction and distance from destinations.  They also provide useful information on geographical and historical places of interest and give directions to specific locations such as rest areas, camping sites or parking areas.

Guide signs are generally rectangular, with the long axis, where practicable, horizontal.  Exceptions to this stipulation are route markers and kilometre plates which are normally of a shield like shape.

Words, symbols and borders on guide signs should be of a colour that contrasts with the sign background.  The background colour should be easily recognisable as belonging to the particular category of guide sign for which it is used.  For example, a brown background (white legend) signifies a tourist sign group whereas, a blue background (white legend) indicates roadside facilities, services and service areas, state route markers and bicycle route markers.

As with other major sign classifications such as Warning Signs, guide signs are divided into 12 sub-classifications with the prefix “G” used to denote the guide sign classification.
