Deep in Victoria's western district, the Wannon Falls picnic area and campground is an unlikely spot to see the embodiment of Australia's anti-Global-Financial-Crisis-future-proofing initiative.
|Wannon Falls, Wannon, Victoria|
It's not immediately obvious.
At first glance, the reserve is a fairly standard – albeit picturesque – rest area.
Visitors generally head for the Wannon Falls viewing platform, with a splendid view of the falls and their hollowed-out backdrop.
Unless the visitor is a twitcher*, of course! Easily identified by their neck-breaking backward head tilt, birwatchers gaze upwards, hoping to view elusive Powerful Owl roosting in the tall eucalypts.
After exhausting these attractions, the average visitor will most likely head for the amenities – the last port-of-call before resuming the journey.
However, only the informed traveller will note the small but significant distinction that sets this building aside from most public conveniences around the country.
Because THIS loo provides a rare insight into EXACTLY where Australian tax dollars go!
Along with an extraordinary opportunity for Aussie taxpayers to simultaneously a) get their money's worth AND b) make a statement showing how they feel about it!
Public funds expenditure outcomes like these provide assurance that government fiscal management policies and priorities will continue to represent the needs of Australian taxpayers AND overseas visitors.
Oh yes. AND bloggers who blog about Aussie public toilet oddities … !!!
