GREEN with Envy! Australia’s Scenic Public Toilet #31, Adelaide Hills
I’m SOOOOO lucky.
Not just because I’m based in South Australia’s splendidly scenic Adelaide Hills.
Not just because I’m within cooee* of a clutch of supremely photogenic attractions.
Not just because of Adelaide’s enviable Mediterranean climate.
The real reason I’m so lucky?
I live within 5 minutes of TWO of South Australia’s most Scenic Public Toilets!!
You’ve already seen #18 – The Most Glamorous Little Outhouse in OZ, just down the road at Da Vince’s Eyes Art Gallery and Cafe. But I’ll wait if you want to go have another look.
Just up the road and round the corner are two wineries – escapees from the renowned Barossa Valley wine region, about half an hour’s drive away, and another reason I’m lucky. But I digress.
The same Tenafeate Creek that runs through our property gives its name to one of these. And the good news is they also serve platters, pizzas and gelato to those lucky enough to be seated overlooking this remarkable view!
Of course the Adelaide Hills are as dry as a sandbox in the desert during summer, although the bleached white grass and grey-green eucalypts make a staggering contrast with the endless blue sky, unsullied by clouds. Like these shots from the first day of summer, 1st December 2012! I’ll wait again if you want another look …
But on this fine October 2012 day, the vista from under the RED umbrellas shading us from the strengthening spring sunlight as we feasted and drank was so GREEN it hurt the eyes.
And also overlooking this staggering sight?
A Scenic Public Toilet!!
The view facing the other way is just as inviting, with the superbly set eating area adjoining the vineyard.
So I’m lucky, right?
My only problem on a fine spring day is deciding which of these two FINE Scenic Public Toilets to choose!! OR … whether I’ve got enough time for both!!
Are you GREEN with envy??!!
Why not join me sometime?!?!
