An interesting toilet break, Tintinara

Tintinara in the upper south east of South Australia is a delightful rural centre. As the sign on the information centre (photo above) indicates, this is the heart of national parks in the region. On my recent visit I spent some time exploring the town. This was deliberate as I had the time to do it. Normally we just drive straight through on our way elsewhere.

If you look carefully at the building shown above (click on the photo to enlarge the image) you can see that the locals have an interesting sense of humour. An artist has painted a couple sitting there waiting for the train. The building now used as the information centre and craft gallery used to serve as the town’s railway station. The trains to Melbourne and Adelaide still pass through here but the passenger service is very limited.

In the park a few metres away are some public toilets. The same artist has been at work here too.

I wonder if you can guess which way to go to the men’s toilets, and where the ladies’ toilets are located. I took some close up photos to help you. If you’re still not sure, click on the photos to enlarge the image and look for the standardised toilet symbol sticker on the wall above the figures.
