Toilet hunting has come to a stall (pun intended) over the past year so I cherish the moments I stumble upon outdoor beauties like this. This was found at the Oculus Pavilion, while on a bike ride along Toronto’s Humber Trail.
Abandoned toilets at Castle HillPosted: April 20, 2019 Filed under: Australian Toilets, Broken Toilets, Outdoors, Regional Queensland Leave a comment
Late at night my brother and I paid a visit to a side of Townsville’s Castle Hill that neither of us had been to before. Instead of heading up the usual Castle Hill Road, we ventured to a little-known entrance in Garbutt and had fun exploring some old abandoned, graffiti-clad rooms close to an old disused quarry, dotted around the hill’s southern incline.
I was amused to come across what must have once been a block of toilets, who knows how many decades ago. All that remains today were a couple of footprints of where the crappers used to be, and some piping which appeared to have some toilet paper stuffed inside.
Here’s one of the other abandoned rooms I was talking about, covered in local tags:
Chinese construction sitePosted: April 8, 2019 Filed under: Broken Toilets, Chinese Toilets, Dirty Toilets, Outdoors Leave a comment
Just down the street from the hostel I stayed at on Shanghai’s Yunnan South Road was this construction site, complete with toilet at the canvassed entry. I’m pretty sure it was only used as a garbage bin and not as an actual toilet.
VIDEO: Toilography visits Potsdam, NYPosted: November 19, 2018 Filed under: American Toilets, Outdoors, Regional NY, Toilet Gardens, Toilet videos, Touristy Toilets Leave a comment
Dan from Toilography travelled to Potsdam in upstate New York to see Hank Robar’s famous Potty Gardens!
With a population of around 17,000, this quaint university town in upstate NY is also populated by hundreds of colourful loos. Check out the video to find out about the reason they’re there.
And Happy World Toilet Day! This video was released on 19th November 2018 – the annual United Nations observation that raises awareness of the global sanitation crisis. There are billions of people out there who don’t have access to sanitary facilities. My Potsdam adventure is very light-hearted but please take some time today to think about those less fortunate and donate to a worthy cause if you can.
Just look at these works of art! –

Dan from Toilography went to Ravenswood, North Queensland, and saw a classic Aussie thunderbox outside an historic miner’s site. Take a tour of the town’s attractions, pubs & toilets, and you’ll even get to meet Woodie, a true Aussie character!

Dan from Toilography went to Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg and saw these funky shipping container toilets, as well as a statue of a rather famous bear named Winnie. Take a look at the video here:
The park’s washrooms were constructed in 2013 and have even picked up a couple of design awards in the years that followed. I was definitely glad to have had the chance to come here!
Hecla Island Wildlife Viewing PlatformPosted: May 20, 2018 Filed under: Canadian Toilets, Composting Toilets, Manitoba, Outdoors Leave a comment
On the way out of Hecla Island I spotted a trail at the side of the road which led to a wildlife viewing platform.
And here, ladies & gentlemen, is where I stubbed across the most peaceful setting for a loo in a long time, certainly in all of my Manitoban travels and maybe even in the past year or two of toilet tourism altogether. Isn’t this such a peaceful place in the bush to go about your business?
Some bonus photos of the viewing platform itself (I saw no wildlife aside from some mosquito kinda things) and a nearby lake:
Hecla VillagePosted: May 20, 2018 Filed under: Canadian Toilets, Composting Toilets, Manitoba, Outdoors Leave a comment
On the Sunday I took a drive about 2 hours north of Winnipeg to the Hecla Provincial Park. It’s a beautiful little peninsula that extends out into Lake Winnipeg, with pleasant roads, trails, fishing, scenery and opportunities to see Manitoba wildlife up close & personal.
Drop toilets featured prominently across the park, I guess because of the limited plumbing & electricity service. I stopped briefly in Hecla Village and found this tidy-on-the-outside but messy-on-the-inside drop toilet by the fishing pier:
A little up from the pier was this beautiful & secluded old church next to a graveyard. Note the drop toilets at the back of the cemetery, next to the red shed:
How’s this for toilet tranquility! Much cleaner inside this one too.
