Wayfinding signage helps customers to find tourism businesses and arranging good signage is a way that they can promote their business.
The Queensland Government has signage guidelines and a streamlined assessment process for the installation of tourist signs for commercial tourist attractions and service signs on state-controlled roads.
These guidelines improve road safety, provide positive wayfinding and attraction information for visitors, as well as a major improvement in the quality and consistency of tourist signs throughout the state.
To apply, operators must meet all sign requirements and criteria for their category of tourist attraction or type of service.
