Australia’s scenic wonders – such as the amazing Karlu Karlu/Devils Marbles – are generally accessible to the public.  That means plenty of nearby facilities such as lookouts, viewing platforms, car parks, campgrounds, picnic tables, BBQs.

AND plenty of public conveniences.

That’s just one reason Australia is known as the ‘lucky country’!

Around the country it’s possible do your business in some pretty spectacular spots. But which convenience block has Australia’s best setting? Best view? Most interesting location?

Or even all three?

Close to the top of my list is Australian Scenic Public Toilet #1 – the amenities at the Devil’s Marbles campground, Northern Territory (see top photo).  This array of giant granite boulders is about an hour’s drive south of Tennant Creek, and about four hours drive north of Alice Springs.

Of course this lovely spot is a great destination in its own right.  That’s because it’s especially magical at sunrise and sunset when the rocks are aglow with golden light.  At that time, it’s almost impossible to get a bad photo. Exploring the rock stacks is fun, and climbing to the top gives great views over the surrounding plains.

This is one of my favourite scenic loo settings – but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best.  There are a lot more Scenic Public loos around Australia with killer views, fantastic natural attractions, and brilliant outlooks.

It’s my mission to find them and show them all to you right here.

So watch this space!  I’ll be showing you plenty more of Australia’s Scenic Public Toilets in future blog posts – many of which will qualify for the best downunder dunny.

Cross your legs and hold on tight!
