You can blame the public amenities block at Kata Tjuta, near Uluru in the Northern Territory for my obsession with the odd juxtapositioning of Australia’s most spectacular scenery with the often mundane conveniences that service its admirers. The view from this loo MUST be the best in Australia, I thought.
So I captured it on film. And it remained my personal favourite until I saw the amenities at the Devil’s Marbles, also in the Northern Territory.
Then, I visited Rainbow Valley (yep – also Northern Territory) – but although nearly too close to call, it didn’t quite topple the Devil’s Marbles as top loo view in OZ. Still, the top three Scenic Public Toilets were in the Northern Territory, despite a strong showing from South Australia’s Yorke Peninsula ( #5, #6, #11 and a scattering of other state representation.
But now the time has come. The Northern Territory has been supplanted by New South Wales, with this outsider from its magnificent off-shore island, the Lord Howe Island loo!
SO … drumroll please … the Lord Howe Island loo is my NEW favourite! Why? For the absolute jaw-droppingly awesomely superbly magnificent panorama, of course! So great, in fact, you could sit there all day!
But don’t take my word for it – check out the other contenders in the Aussie Loos with Views Hall of Fame.
Go on, check them out. I’ll wait …
So am I right?
Still not sure? Check out my book Aussie Loos with Views! then.
So what do you think? Am I right??
Yeah, I’m right, aren’t I?!?!?!
PS But if you’ve got a better one, I’d LOOOVE to see it!
