There are no guides there. They ask for money. In the interests of Free
Information I used the Uni library.

In the Australian Road Rules there are only roundabouts.
The mini roundabout of Europe and UK does have variation on the standard
roundabout rules (remember these people also invented the multiple
roundabout, aka Magic roundabout).
So here, in the road rules = legally, there are only roundabouts.
They do have yellow signs. Sometimes vandals remove signs. Sometimes
council workers remove signs, so they aren't always there.
