Maps & Wayfinding Signage

Enhance the visitor experience to your site by making navigation easy. Our beautiful maps and wayfinding material make finding your way simple.

A range of signage is often required to ensure visitors can orientate themselves and make decisions about which route to take and how much time they need. This may include:

  • Site Entry Signs – used to identify the site/park and to create a sense of welcome
  • Information Bay / Shelter Signs – used to introduce visitors to areas by displaying comprehensive maps, information text, walking track information, regulations and statutory information
  • Directional Signs – these provide visitors with cues to guide them and keep them on the move. They include track head signs, minor directional signs, directional totems and map totems. Read more
