What’s a weary Aussie traveller to do after a few hours and a few hundred kilometres on the road? Stagger from the car – reeling from too much sitting and legs crossed from sipping water water – and head straight for the loo, of course! Or the nearest tree, rock or shrub.
Finding a good place to do your business is an Aussie outback traveller’s rite of passage.
So how desperate would you be if you’ve just crossed the universe, and you’re a gazillion light years from home??
Appropriate facilities – or intelligent life forms – aren’t always easy to find in this corner of the universe. Local and intergalactic travellers will therefore be relieved (in more ways than one) to learn that the Wycliffe Well roadhouse doesn’t just cater for mere earthlings.
Deep in the heart of the Northern Territory, and self-styled UFO capital of OZ, the roadhouse is where all the smart aliens (and local travellers) head for a quirky break.
Alien body waste disposal technology is still a new science here on Earth, however Wycliffe Well’s ground-breaking inclusive convenience block labelling is sure to minimise offence no matter how far or from where the visitor has travelled!
Or to what facilities the alien visitor is accustomed …
The simple earth technology might not meet home galaxy standards. But I would defy any traveller from anywhere to wander amongst the random statues and murals tastefully adorning the grounds and not find something to make them feel at home!
With the possible exception of the Elvis campsite …
In 2002 the Sun Herald ranked the tiny Wycliffe Well roadhouse 5th in the world for UFO activity. Sceptics may scoff at its high per-capita UFO sighting rate, and the uninformed will almost certainly put it down to substance abuse overindulgence; but who’s to say this isn’t an alien home away from home??
After seeing the extraordinary attractions of Wycliffe Well for myself, I suspect extraterrestrial navigation systems throughout the universe will be busy programming in its coordinates!!
AND … maybe one day the Wycliffe Well roadhouse will have the first certified amenities block in OZ to meet intergalactic standards!
I guess I’ll just have to hold on ’til then!!
