South Burnett Regional Council Town and Locality Entry Statements

The local government region of South Burnett in south-east Queensland comprises many towns and villages, each with their own distinct character.

Council commissioned these creative entry statements to welcome tourists and visitors to the region and to celebrate each locality’s identity.

Danthonia Designs was selected to design, fabricate and install twelve town entry monument signs and twenty-six village entry pylon signs. As required by state road regulations, many of the signs include frangible hardware to allow the posts to break away if impacted by a vehicle.

Danthonia’s artists hand-drew custom line drawings for each town. The Kingaroy sign shows peanuts, a key crop in the region, Murgon includes fishing and cattle, Hivesville shows off local produce including honey, and the Nanango sign references the town’s rich colonial past.
