No idea when it is likely to date from, at the latest possibly early 90's as the KFC rebrand was circa 1992 in Australia, after it was rolled out in 1991 in the States. It actually tasted good then.

I can recall that, at my first ever full time employment, I would frequent KFC regularly, and this bbq chicken was introduced not long after I started work. I would estimate that it was in about 1981/1982 ...

The Kentucky Fried Chicken face logo was carried over with the KFC rebrand until 1997 when they introduced a new one. Another revised one was introduced in 2006 and remains to this day. The first face logo for KFC lingered on at many of the older established outlets for years after the 1997 version, but have all but disappeared now, though strangely remained on internal cardboard supply packaging and even on the lid of their mini cheesecake packaging until they discontinued it around the early 000's.
I discovered this one still in the Eastgardens shopping centre car park here in Sydney. If anyone discovers any other survivors, could they post it here?

Before the building on the left hand side of the first photo collapsed (no XXX, it really did collapse), you could actually see a very old silhouette of a Kentucky Fried Chicken (pre-abbreviation era) sign.

Over at Southpoint Shopping Centre down the road, you could also see a ghost old Woolworths Supermarket sign (the logo with the old stylized W) from Flint Street before they put up a bunch of signage for Aldi and Chemist Warehouse. The building that houses the Woolworths is actually quite a curiosity because it dates back to approximately 1980, and was kept operating while the rest of the centre was basically knocked down and rebuilt. I remember the temporary access ramps quite well.
Eastgardens to Kingsford is a 1-2 section fare.

Oooh the very memorable twin loop logo! I only recently learned that Big W stores used it a well!
We have lost some classic logos that were part of the magic late 70s/ early 80s era, to appease the existence of some very egotistical people. Pepsi and Pizza Hut ate another two companies who's symbols were spot on. I want Nock & Kirby's hardware chain back!
The Woolworths that now occupies the old City Ford car dealership between Crown St and Riley St, Wooloomoolloo, revealed an outline of the previous Hastings Deering signage that remained hidden for decades after the Ford signs were removed, while it was being transformed into Woolworths. Hastings Deering were the distributors for AEC commercial vehicles among other things. My 92 Fairlane Ghia was bought from City Ford (says yes more often! -remember that awesome jingle?). It still has the numberplate surrounds with their logo!
There are plenty of those metal covers with the old DMR logo to be found on footpaths and I even have a couple of metal pillars sticking out of the ground near my place in Ettalong Beach, with well preserved Telecom Australia full colour logos attached.
