A Loo With a View – The Western Queensland Edition

Western Queensland Road Trip #20

A road trip through the outback

is a marvellous affair.

You can drive for hours

and think the land is bare.

But if nature calls along the way

there’s no need for despair.

There are outback loos with outback views

and their own distinctive flair.

~

Often in the outback

it is very, very dry.

But some bush loos have water views.

You wouldn’t pass them by.

Warrego River at the Cunnamulla Weir

Moonie River, Nindigully

~

When Thomas Mitchell camped here in 1846

he had to bring his own facilities.

But now you’ll find this bathroom on the river bank –

it’s basic but it covers all your needs.

Maranoa River, Mitchell

~

When visiting a winery

a bathroom is essential.

And if it’s hidden in the garden

your visit’s confidential.

Riversands Winery, St George

~

But on a dusty bush track

where the toilet is a wreck,

privacy’s not guaranteed –

You may need to go low-tech!

More loos with beautiful views!

A Loo With a View – The Canadian Edition

Canada #44

Canadian loos have wonderful views

of mountains, sea and sky.

Coast to coast, from west to east,

these views will satisfy!

~

In summer at Butchart Gardens

where flowers are celebrated,

they are blooming everywhere –

even the loos are decorated!

Butchart Gardens, Vancouver Island, BC

~

A gentleman in his bathroom

could always sit and ponder

the view from his bathroom window

of the mountains over yonder.

Craigdorrach Castle, Victoria, Vancouver Island, BC

~

At beautiful Deep Cove

you’ll find this deluxe facility.

Pitt River is very scenic

but the toilets aren’t so pretty.

Deep Cove, BC

Pitt River, BC

~

Before you take a gondola ride

have a toilet stop.

There are no handy bathrooms

on the mountain top!

Sea to Sky Gondola, Squamish, BC

~

A toilet block amidst the trees –

its location is quite practical.

With running water everywhere,

you might need to be tactical.

Brandywine Falls, BC

~

Old buildings at the village

tell tales of long ago.

This outhouse has seen better days.

It’s only there for show.

Black Creek Pioneer Village, Toronto, ON

~

A long walk around the islands

might leave you feeling needy.

With a bathroom halfway round the track

you won’t have to be speedy.

Toronto Island Park, Toronto, ON

~

When the Blue Jays are in town

and you go to see the game,

learn about baseball history

in the Washroom Hall of Fame.

Rogers Centre, Toronto, ON

~

This pretty little restroom

is very well disguised.

It’s only when you walk around

that you can see the signs.

Montmorency Falls, Quebec City, QC

~

So when you visit Canada

and you need to use the loo,

it’s highly likely it will have

an amazing view!

Kevtoberfest #26

Australian loos have lovely views

from the mountains to the sea,

When you need to answer nature’s call

they’re where you want to be!

~

This bush loo looks a little rough

but believe me when I say,

it’s better than no loo at all

in a bushland hideaway.

The road to Perry’s Lookdown

Perry’s Lookdown, Blue Mountains

~

These stylish loos are made of stone

which is very apt.

They overlook some famous rocks.

At sunset we were rapt!

The Three Sisters, Katoomba, Blue Mountains

~

At Jenolan we found two beaut loos

in excellent locations.

Outside there were garden views

and a hotel for vacations.

Jenolan Caves House, Jenolan

~

The Grand Arch housed a second loo

amongst the cave formations.

Please use this loo

before you start your caving explorations.

The Grand Arch, Jenolan

~

The town of Bermagui

has a loo up on the hill.

With views in all directions,

it really fits the bill!

Bermagui River

Horseshoe Bay, Bermagui

~

This loo may look a little plain

– it’s very practical.

But sunset over the water

is simply magical.

Wagonga Inlet, Narooma

~

This tidy loo is on the lakes –

the water views are fine.

The locals like to gather

and enjoy the bright sunshine.

So when you’re on a road trip

If you find loos with views like these

You really can’t go wrong!

Five Western Australian Loos With Wonderful Views

If you’re on a road trip, comfortable bathroom facilities along the way are a lucky find. When they are in amazing positions with fantastic views it’s more than good luck – it’s good planning. These wonderful amenities are all located at sites along the south-west coast of Western Australia where the ocean can be wild and the scenery is spectacular.

Sugarloaf Rock is a small granite island off the coast near Yallingup. Completely surrounded by the pounding waters of the Indian Ocean, Sugarloaf Rock is a safe haven for red-tailed tropic birds which fly from the tropics to breed here.

DSCN3234

Travel a little further south to Canal Rocks, a group of rocky islands and reefs which trap the ocean in a series of canals and channels. The rocks here are composed of gneiss, a metamorphic rock formed when the supercontinent Gondwana began to move 230 million years ago. The ocean swirls as it rushes in between these tiny islands and the current is strong – don’t be tempted to swim here.

DSCN3251

DSCN3277

Head east for 600 kilometres to the dramatic coastline of southern Australia and you’ll find these newly built comfort stops at Hamersley Inlet in the Fitzgerald River National Park. The inlet is a salt water lake, sometimes connected to the Southern Ocean by a narrow fiord in the sand dunes. It’s a good spot for fishing when the salt levels aren’t too high.

DSCN0421

DSCN0425

P1070063

Not far from Hamersley Inlet is Cave Point. Put on your coat because the wind blowing off the Southern Ocean feels like it has come all the way from the Antarctic, 4000 kilometres to the south. It’s worth braving the icy wind though to see the ancient coastline stretching away on both sides. In one direction is East Mount Barren, a rugged rocky mountain rising out of the sea. In the opposite direction is West Beach with its fine white sand and crashing waves.

DSCN0349

P1070055

DSCN0360

Continue in an easterly direction past the small coastal village of Hopetoun to Southern Ocean Road. This road hugs the shore and there are several places where you can stop and marvel at the deserted beaches, high dunes and vast expanse of the Southern Ocean. Two Mile Beach is one of many along this part of the coast and if you’re lucky you’ll have both the amenities and the beach all to yourself.

After walking almost five kilometres through the Kosciuszko National Park it is quite a relief to come to a halt at Rawson Pass. It’s the perfect spot to stop for a rest, a picnic lunch and a visit to the restrooms. At an elevation of 2,100 metres, the amenities block at Rawson Pass is the highest toilet block in Australia.

DSCN1876

Constructed of local mountain stone and built into the surrounding slope, the toilet block blends in perfectly with the surrounding area and doesn’t stand out at all.

DSCN1868

What is outstanding is the amazing view from this lofty loo. Mt Kosciuszko is the highest mountain in Australia and even in mid-summer there are patches of snow on its slopes, along with delicate alpine wildflowers and spiky tufts of button grass.

P1030964

From Rawson Pass the Australian Alps can be seen in all directions.

P1030987

It’s hard to go past a bathroom with such a beautiful outlook, especially when it’s the only one on the track between Thredbo and the final ascent to the top of Australia.

When travelling, one of the niceties we all look forward to is easy access to rest rooms, as Mrs Carmichael recently mentioned in this post. Usually we’re grateful if they are clean and well-maintained. When they come with a great location, that’s a bonus. Here are some loos and their amazing views…
