You can plan your trip and the anticipated rest stops ahead of time. Just type in your travel plans and the map will show you where there's a toilet - the location, disabled accessibility, baby change, showers and opening hours etc.
The map shows the location of known public and private toilets all across Australia.
To access and use the "Plan" and "My Toilet" sections of the website, you need to register. It's free and you can print your lists, save them or share them with your family and friends by email or on Facebook etc
Currently, the map shows the location of approximately 16,000 toilets. The map changes and grows as members use the "Suggest a toilet" link.
There's even an iPhone app - go to iTunes for your free download.
If you're planning a trip these holidays or at any time in the future, I'd highly recommend becoming a member of the website. There's nothing worse than being in unknown city or town when you just have to go!
Having internal organs removed due to Bowel Cancer, I desperately need to know where toilets are at any given time, as diahorrea strikes with little or NO warning.
I must carry 'emergency' clothes incase of accidents. It's horrible, but that is my life. Flinders St Station toilets are horrible and very scary; No-one knows where Spencer St's Sthn X Station has toilets anywhere - no signs, no assistance. Back in the 1970's, the Melb. Town Hall's Ladies Toilet facility was an oasis with an attendant, chairs, sofa, decent mirrors - it was a delight to find such RELIEF.
Local Rail Stations used to have toilets, but with NO staff on duty, the toilets are locked and utterly useless.
Shop-staff do not want people rushing in saying 'Help Please!!'
Very few supermarkets have a public toilet available - this MUST be corrected. If you want my money, gimme a toilet, too, fellas!!
Why are so many 'public' toilets dirty, badly lit and frightening? Overseas visitors must be shocked and revolted when they get 'caught short' in Melbourne. The National Map of Toilets is something that should be more widely publicised, and printed in tourist magazines along with other tourist info. for that State . The Melbourne tourist booklet of what to do should certainly have a list of loo locations printed in it!
There should be more unisex toilets. Why do they build the same number of male toilets as women toilets? Women use the toilet more often. I have waited too many times in a long queue at venue, with other women and children waiting to use the ladies, while men are just walking in and straight out of the men toilets. Sense should be that there are more women toilets than men toilets at most venues, or better still unisex toilets.Love that there is an app and a map for toilets locations.
Good and very useful BUTTTTTT still needs work. I used it to look at my neighbourhood and found it had put the public toilet in the park about 100 metres to the west on a suburban street and put the public toilets at the Keswick railway station about 100 metres south of where they are.
