Here are some Australian State borders. None taken by me - all due credit to the original photographers and websites.

Entering Western Australia from South Australia - Quarantine checkpoint. Tougher checks here than at many international borders in Europe!
(Linked from http://www.panoramio.com/photo/14713074)


Another Western Australia sign - on a lesser travelled road thousands of Km further north than the previous photo.


Lovely old sign marking the state broder between New South Wales and South Australia at Cockburn. (Linked from http://www.ozroads.com.au/)


Another New South Wales border crossing, this time in more lush countryside.


Another one on the NSW Qld border


A "Tick Gate" on the Queensland NSW border as it was some decades ago. Quarantine here is no longer quite this rigorous.

At the Queensland border with the Northern Territory


Entering the State of Victoria at the town of Yarrawonga


Entering the Australian Capital Territory.


Very basic sign - nothing superfluous here.

Garz - Świnoujście on Polish-German border. You also get to see the difference in snow plowing

Bulgaria is divided in 28 subdivisions called "oblasti" (or "oblast" in singular). This is the standard sign:

Wow, this bridge looks remarkably like the one in The Truman Show... Does anyone know if this is where it was shot?

A borderstone which marks the border between the Dutch provinces Overijssel and Gelderland, close to Deventer.

Why would some areas of Overijssel be on the west side of the IJssel river between Zwolle and Deventer? I never understood that, there are no fixed links across the river between those cities and it doesn't make much sense to have some land across it.

Perhaps the river changed its course since the border was fixed.

A drive-through New Jersey - Pennsylvania state border on the turnpike. There isn't really anything exciting there, and I posted a night one that was much shorter, but this is a bit better :

the visible sign on the right is this:

This is not a typical state border sign in PA, the typical ones are the one in my avatar

Border between Malopolska's Voivodship and Silesian Voivodship on DK52 between Kety and Czaniec. On the second image you can probably see a difference in tarmac's colour. Darker in Silesian part.




Another Malopolska- Sielesia border. Babice nr Oswiecim-Bierun. The 44 road goes over the longest river in Poland Wisla/Vistula.

Ireland.

Most county boundary signage is like this, but there are some exceptions:
