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:
The toilets next to the rowdy beer garden at Cricketers Arms, Surry Hills, were truly a sight to behold:
In the middle of Sydney’s Newtown is the Midnight Special, a lively & fun neighbourhood bar with an emphasis on good food, drink and live blues/rock music. Named after the 1934 Lead Belly tune, the restrooms here are just as rock ‘n’ roll as the song:
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!

Went for a cuppa today at the Harveys Range Heritage Tea Rooms, famous for being the oldest building in North Queensland
