Australia’s Scenic Public Toilets #27 – Sun Pictures, Broome, WA
|Ladies Amenities at Sun Pictures, Broome, Western Australia|
Many Australian natural wonders with public amenities (think Kata Tjuta, Wyndham or Lord Howe Island) are set amidst such scenic splendour that using them is part of the sightseeing experience! But once you’ve seen it, the view doesn’t really change.

So imagine a convenience block where the view changes a couple of times each night. And where, like a wormhole, it can transport you anywhere in the world, the known universe – AND beyond!
So YOU get to choose the view because the film you’ve chosen to see is the scene at the loo! And what you’ll see from the amenities if your viewing is interrupted by natures call!!

So doing your business really ISa pleasure – of course assuming you’re enjoying the show!

It’s also moved on from the segregated seating that mirrored the pre-1967 Broome society hierarchy of this multicultural pealing town.

A postcard available from the cinema shop shows a full house with Europeans, Japanese, Chinese, Malays, Koepangers, Filipinos and Aboriginals, although children crossed cultural boundaries and sat at the front or back with whoever else had been relegated to this less desirable position!
