Boulia is the first Australian town to join in on a traffic calming craze that is sweeping the globe.
A three-dimensional zebra crossing was painted by Boulia Shire Council out the front of the local state school.
The white blocks seem to float up from the road forming an optical illusion, the idea is that vehicles will slow down as they approach it.
Boulia Shire Council Mayor Rick Britton said he discovered the three-dimensional crossings on social media.
"I saw that other countries had put 3D crossings in to slow the traffic down," Cr Britton said.
"I thought that'd be a great idea in a little outback town like ours."
Cr Britton said Boulia Shire Council had already purchased a line-marking device and the idea went from there.
"I thought why don't we give it a go," he said.
