I have read that Australia was originally laid out with mileposts, but in general have converted to the metric system.

So my question is 'Are there now KM posts on routes', or are mph still the standard.

I am off on the Indian-Pacific, spending time in Perth, Adelaide and Brisbane if this info helps.
