When you gotta go, youre gotta go!

Hi All

Some toilet talk and I hope the mods don't flush this thread away.

Ref: info@westprint.com.au
Quote:
To put it another way, NSW has a public toilet for every 1462 people, whereas Tasmania has one for every 540 people.
The lack of Toilets for the travelling public in NSW was noticeable, especially after the public facilities at the truck stops in Victoria.

'Hang on' took a whole new urgency, when looking for a pit stop.

If any public spirited persons can get into the ear of there local NSW member,
tell them about their shortfall being the lack of long drops.

And if you have an Android phone you can even get it to take you to one
Aussie Loo - Android app on AppBrain

Probably something similar for the iPhone as well.

There is also the fast food chains like Hungry Jacks, KFC, and Macca's as well as hotels/pubs/clubs if you are caught needing a stop.

& the quality of public amenities is terrible in NSW.

The worst 2 are the truck stop at Berowra and the first rest stop on the Hume Highway heading South.

How many tourists from overseas stop at these after just getting of the plane to enjoy a holiday in Australia?

I stop at McDonalds because their toilets are clean and the sterile food won't make you sick.
