Belgian man travelling across Australia sets internet alight with a montage of nation’s wildlife

A selfie with Uluru, the Sydney Opera House or the Great Barrier Reef in the background is a must for international travellers when they visit Australia.

Not for this Belgian tourist.

Instead of the usual photos of Australia’s landmarks or cuddling a koala, he went down a different route by taking a series of selfies with road warning signs featuring our native wildlife.

Among those pictured in the warning signs include a koala, kangaroo, camel, emu, brumby, cow, turtle and tree kangaroo.

It appears North Queensland was on the itinerary with a selfie in front of a warning sign about marine stingers.

The tourist recently posted a nine photo montage of his Australian memories on social media forum Reddit.

‘Last year’s trip to Australia, love from Belgium,’ the tourist posted.

The post has since gone viral and sparked more than 430 comments.

‘I see you’ve visited all our major landmarks, well done! I must get out and do the tour one day,’ one man commented.

Another added: ‘Great pics! We do have a lot of surprising signs when you head into the country or outback. Did you see any cool animals? I would love to see a tree kangaroo but it is so rare, I doubt I ever would. I’ve never seen a brumby either.’

Others would have liked to have seen more landmarks in the photos.

 ‘I don’t see a giant pineapple in any of those pictures,’ one person commented

Another added: ‘Do not forget the giant banana outside of Coffs Harbour.’
