Delaneys Corner sign at Nirranda, Australia

The Delaney’s Corner sign can usually be found on the Warrnambool - Peterborough Road at Nirranda in the Western District of Victoria, Australia. It does prove rather popular with a certain element in the area so it may not be there when you pass by but keep an eye out for it anyway.
