The poster is from Broken Hill as far as I can tell. So no blatant tell-tale signs of a hoax just yet.

This is legit. I can confirm the Living Desert Flora & Fauna Sanctuary.

It fits, and IMO seems very likely as a detour option or something.

Gypsum street is indeed in Broken Hill

A fake sighting probably wouldn't make up a street name. I can see a random resident of BH thinking that this is funny.

Broken Hill defiantly wears its heart on its sleeve. Many of the street names pay homage to minerals, resources and chemicals which helped forge the town. Streets and lanes so named include Kaolin, Gypsum, Bromide, Crystal, Oxide, Silver, Argent, Chloride, Iodide, Sulphide, Cobalt, Mica, Mercury, Garnet, Talc, Silica, Tin, Bismuth and Calcite!

it would have been about 10am this morning they were in town. I hear they'll also be heading out to the Living Desert Sanctuary and Sculptures during the trip, not sure when though. They're staying overnight, then leaving tomorrow.

This is so 2 days ago, but I found a nice pic of Amanda and Kris taken at LAX. I'm at work and don't want to save the pictures so I'll post a link.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/28063817@N08/5200109794/

I also found a blogger from Sydney that had 2 pictures a friend  took at Sydney Town Hall. These don't look very different from others we already have - may even be duplicates.

http://redchiefblogpress.blogspot.com/2010/11/jealous.html

I send along my belated congratulations to Coutzy, Dhall and everyone else who did such a fantastic job chasing teams in Sydney yesterday. Simply incredible work. My hat's off to you all.  :yourock:
