Strategically located at the Razorback Lookout Picnic Area in Evans Head in Northern New South Wales, the views from these amenities would HAVE to be among Australia’s most spectacular!
From the outside, that is…
Inside the facilities is a VERY different story! Or at least it was during our November 2009 visit when they appeared to have been used as shelter during a storm. And what do you need when you’re sheltering from a storm in a public toilet? Why, fire of course!!
Some damage had been repaired on our August 2010 visit, but the absence of locks still made for easy exit and ingress. TOO easy!! Holding the door shut or standing guard while others go isn’t quite how I envisaged spending our visit…
But, looking north towards Ballina, south towards Bundjalung National Park or west to Evans Head itself makes it all worthwhile. And east? Well … you ARE just looking out to sea, but the keen-eyed just MAY spot a whale! Or two!!
But hell! What’s a little air, water and fire damage to a seasoned earth-sign Aussie traveller? Anyhow, who visits a fabulous spot like this to spend all their time in the loo?
No one, I hope! SO … because doing one’s business is so unappealing in these conveniences, and one therefore spends more time outside enjoying the REAL attractions, we actually owe the vandals our thanx! Don’t we??
Happy 2011 travels!!
PS HOT TIP – while you’re there, don’t miss the mighty fine Evans Head Bakery!!
