Australia’s Scenic Public Toilets #9 – Brachina Gorge, Flinders Ranges SA

A public toilet in Teamsters Campground??  Sounds like something the Village People could be proud of!!  Or is that just me …

Go west – or at least to the western end of Brachina Gorge, deep in the heart of South Australia’s magnificent Flinders Ranges!  Teamsters Campground is the perfect spot from which to explore the pre-historic strata layers of the gorge’s geological trail more closely.

The conveniences are, in turn, the perfect spot from which to reflect on the rugged (hhhmmm… another possible Village People connection!), natural beauty within which the campground is situated.

No denying it, whichever way you turn, the views are AMAAAAAAAAZING!!

But you’ll have to come out of the bathroom to see them!!

Like it? SHARE it!


  • @wintergurl – Welcome! It gets pretty hot in summer, but very pleasant in spring when we visited. Hope you come back real soon!!

  • wow . the view is awesome …but i think the place is damn hot … is it ?

  • @Betty – yes, the loo is hardly a blip on the aesthetic balance of the whole scene!!

  • @L’Aussie – Flinders Ranges are FAAAABULOUS! So good I’ve given you some more places to visit!! Check out my Ballina post for backlink to your Northern Rivers …
    @The Empress – well, I’m honoured! Thanx so much for your visit and kind comments – look forward to seeing you back here! Blog love 2u2 – love your work!!

  • Thanks for the blog love! It’s always great discovering new readers and their blogs. I’m a big fan of all things down under so I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    Have a great week!

  • Hey there me heartie, you’ve found a couple of places I haven’t been to yet! The Flinders Ranges have been on the agenda for sometime but haven’t managed that yet.

    Thanks for coming by and commenting on my Darwin pics. Have a few more up now!

  • @Loz – Actually, not too bad! For my overseas readers, Loz is referring to the curse of the outback – blowflies! They’re having a great year this year presumably because of all the rain (happy to stand corrected if there’s another reason …)

  • Amd how were the blowies 🙂

  • @Travel Tart – you’re right, and I reckon these little Aussie beauties could give yours a run (so to speak) for their money!!
    @RJ Fry – Welcome! Hope you enjoy your stay!! Have you seen the other ones in the series? This is getting close to the top of the heap though …
    @Jim – yeah, put that leopard back in his box! (if anyone cares, there’s a history behind my exchange with Jim – check out his blog to see what/why!!)
    @Kath – what do you mean, shake your hands dry? This IS the driest state etc etc, so not a lot of water around – except when the run-off from the minuscule roof fills the tank, which happily it had during our visit!!

  • You can enjoy the view whilst you shake your hands dry and wipe them on your jeans 🙂

  • Yeah well from now on I’ll be in and out in a flash.

  • Those toilets sure are in a picturesque location!

  • Nice – there’s nothing better than taking a dump with a great view….

  • @Joan Elizabeth – well, the view is really the main thing; the loo is incidental!!
    @Andrew – Happily (or sadly – depending on how urban you are) it’s a bit remote for musak!
    @Mary – who cares when the view is this good? But actually, yes! Although they’re composting pit toilets …
    @LV – So great of you to drop by and leave such a nice comment – always good to hear your views!

  • I would certainty be proud to find one of them if there was a need. Interesting post.

  • Yes, but are the facilities clean:-). The views you have shown us are spectacular. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings…Mary

  • Hope the toilet did not play muzak that you can’t stop.

  • I don’t remember the loo but sure remember the view.
