The reason the sign was erected was because of community concern.
The concern was that if people drove through faster than 50 km/h and blinked, they would miss seeing the town.
No, that is a bit harsh. Coolatai is my home, and I have been made to feel welcome by those who have lived here longer than me
(which is most people). If you should pass through, drop into the Wallaroo Hotel and say g'day. I selected Coolatai as a place to
live because it has the best light in Australia and because it lies at the confluence on five biogeographic zones so has some
amazing wildlife. It is a lovely place to unwind.
