Thanks Josh and Rod.

No, this is in SA on the Eyre Peninsula. 13Km from the Flinders Hway

I can't find references to it, but it was on the ABC news.

Cheers Rob

A road sign to Nowhere Else is a frequent target for thieves and souvenir hunters.

Elliston District Council CEO Mary Deakin said it had become an expensive problem for the council on Eyre Peninsula in South Australia.

"People sort of look at it and say 'Oh that'd be good to have hanging in the shed or up above the bar' or something like that, so they acquire it," she said.

"Over time it does become quite expensive."

Contrary to the name on the sign, the dirt road actually leads somewhere.

The road branches off the Flinders Highway near the coastal town of Sheringa and heads inland to Tooligie.

Ms Deakin said there was an historic reason for the name.

"It's a story of a couple of shepherds who set out to find the shepherd's hut and because there was a lot of trees like she-oaks in that day, they found it very hard to see," she explained.

"When they were coming up over a rise, one of the guys said 'If it's not over this hill it's nowhere else'."

She said the shepherds eventually found the hut and the name stuck.

The property where the hut was located was named 'Nowhere Else' until it was amalgamated into other stations in the area.

Ms Deakin said the council had considered making souvenir versions of the sign to sell to help deter people from stealing the original.

But it was unsure people would be prepared to pay.

I use this site to find places - If it is not there you are probably using a colloquial name or misspelling the name.

Josh, you have pointed out something that works differently in different situations. I opened up this thread and noticed the link did not work.

I then followed the instructions suggested in Reply 6 and produced the results I got yesterday. Whilst that page was open I copied the URL, pasted it in another tab and got all the results in that tab. That explains why I got the correct results when I tested the link yesterday but did not get them when I clicked on the link today.

Sorry for the bum steer. If you follow David's instruction you will get what I wanted you to see.
