    This is the only area on the entire length of the Pacific Highway where you see such signs. Have seen them saying to slow down to 80kph from 110kph!! This must be a slippery-when-wet road surface.

    While the northern one isn't. Does indicate just how flukey the wind can be here with the terrain as it is.

    The road does appear much flatter than it really is in this image.

    The possum overpasses slung across the Pacific Highway to allow possums to travel thus prevent inbreeding by introducing new DNA to other groups of possoms. Before these overpasses were constructed possom populations were cut off from other breeding stock by the highway as well being killed if they tried to dart across at night to follow the call of love as they are nocturnal.

    Another possom overpass. They cross the entire divided motorway.

    Yet another. These are all on the same stretch of road. There must be quite a few different possom groups in the area.. Ring-tail & Brush-tail possoms are the most common breeds.

    In the distance is the fencing designed to keep our native wildlife of the high speed motorways on the Pacific Highway.

    This fencing travels for hundreds & hundreds of kilometers on both sides of the Pacific Highway, especially in areas of state forests & National Parks though some is places on private land. Don't see road kill so it must work.

    Close up view of the native wildlife protective fencing taken while travelling at 110kph. Some areas of these fences have entry points constructed in such a way through the fence as to allow the animals to enter from the road but cannot get out.

    Cruising along at 110kph. More farmland ahead. Dull, overcast weather which is a shame.
