Australian Holidays

Wicked Campers could be no more


Queensland is putting an end to slogans and images that degrade women.

WARNING: Obscene language

“LIFE sucks if your girlfriend doesn’t.”

Let’s face it: on the scale of one to offensive, this statement is hardly the worst we’ve seen — at least when it comes to the catchphrases emblazoned on the sides of Wicked Campers, which are popular with backpackers travelling around Australia.

This week, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is introducing legislation revoking the registration of commercial operators who refuse to remove offensive slogans from their vehicles.

It could mark the beginning of the end for the controversial artwork, which has caused plenty of headlines over the past few years.
