About this Event

Who travels around Australia and takes 1000s of photos of old signs? The Gents, that’s who! Come and hear about their adventures and discover the history (and mystery) of some of Australia’s most intriguing signs.

In 2017, Brady Michaels and Dale Campisi drove more than 40,000km around Australia searching for signs for their book, Signs of Australia, vintage signs from the city to the outback. On their travels, they found everything from convict-carved and hand painted ghost signs to modern neon beauties and local icons including Canberra's famous Starlight Cinema sign. Hear the stories behind some of their favourite signs and take in the colour and character of Australia in a retro road trip slide show.

Free. Bookings essential.
