Amenities, Attractions and Axe Murderers at Whyalla Conservation Park, South Australia

Wild Dog Hill, Whyalla Conservation Park, South Australia

He probably wasn’t an axe murderer. I mean, skidding into the carpark in a cloud of dust, ‘Uptown Girl’ blaring from the stereo, and parking well away from the only other car in the car park? Despite my lack of hands-on experience with axe murderers, I was pretty sure this wasn’t archetypal behaviour. Was it? But through the clouds of

The Little Loo the Government Forgot! Salt Creek, South Australia

Coorong View, South Australia

Maybe Salt Creek’s just off the radar. Or perhaps someone just forgot about it. Or possibly there’s a proposal still in the pipeline. Whatever the reason, Salt Creek has NO public amenities!

Western Treatment Plant with Avalon Airport and You Yangs in the distance, Victoria, Australia

View of HIGHEST Loo in OZ at Rawsons Pass from Mt Kosciuszko Summit, Snowy Mountains, NSW Some do it for the record. Some do it for the challenge. Some do it just because it’s there.
