Australia’s Scenic Public Toilets #16 – Richmond, Queensland
At first glance, the setting of these conveniences in western Queensland’s Richmond is far from exotic. It’s nowhere near as scenic as Lord Howe Island’s #15 – my favourite to date! Unlike Largs Bay’s #12, there’s no colourful loo-art adorning the amenities block either. And it also lacks a quirky connection, like the poetry of Gunnedah’s #8!

Sitting atop an ancient inland sea – in past millenia this loo (and those who sit thereon) would have been 40-50 metres under water!!

But, during a hard day’s dig on the Richmond fossil fields, you’ll more than likely use the amenities building at least once! And in so doing, rest easy in the knowledge that you could be contributing potential coprolites for future generations – or even alien life forms – to unearth, study scientifically or turn into jewelry!! As you do …
So don’t be fooled by its ordinary exterior – this public toilet is WAAAAAY more significant than it looks!!
