Northern Territory dunnies among  world’s best

Good design and a great view were some of the criteria used to decide the winners of the Toilet Awards

The best loo with a view award was given to the picturesque toilet perched over a cliff on the Cobourg Peninsula in Garig Gunak Barlu National. And Kathleen Buzzacott Art Studio in Alice Springs was the joint winner of best design.“A good public toilet had a ‘trickle-down effect’ into the local economy, by enticing tourists to stop and look around said Judge Bronwyn White.

She said the Cobourg toilet was a clear standout.“To be able to sit on the toilet and be able to watch the crocodiles and nature — there’s no other toilet like it,” Ms White said.“Someone said it’s like watching a live National Geographic show from the toilet.”The “waterless, odourless and environmentally friendly” bog converts waste into -organic humus.Guests can enjoy a view of crocodiles basking on sands and see blacktip reef sharks hunting.Built in 2016, The Alice Springs loos was painted by the art studio’s owner.
