      This is something that should always been Number 1, or Number 2 on the list of what to bring with you when travelling.

      (sorry... couldn't help myself) ;-)

        Trust Aussies to think of putting something like this together...

          George Costanza invents the i-toilet app in a Curb your Enthusiasm Seinfeld reunion.

          of course someone steals his idea and makes a fortune.

            "Excellent fascilities" George Costanza..I can never get over that episode where he is telling Jerry the best toilets in NYC. This whole thread is hilarious. I hope the app will have a star rating system for all the toilets so you know which are ok to use.

              Hi all

              Many people have incontinence but otherwise have an active lifestyle and do lots of traveling and seeing places. Having access to the locations means that can enjoy their travels more - its not funny when they dont know if a toilet is a few km away or a 100 ks away. Fortunately I'm not in that situation but I do appreciate their problems and one small government website that actually is useful. (OT; I wonder if Abbot has looked at how he could save by shutting down that site?)

                It would be very much like Tony to not leave anyone a pot to piss in ;-)

                  Whenever I've tried to use this map (not often), the toilets that it recommended were closed. They're often on sporting grounds and only open on the weekend when a team is playing. Good idea, but the implementation needs work.

                    That's often the way with government ideas- they look good on paper.

                      If you want them to work, you have to be prepared to commit enough resources. Same as anything else.

                        Shame the current govt is so against the NBN. If they were all hooked up to the NBN satellite system then the govt website could be updated in real-time showing if they were open or not and even how busy they were. That would be useful :-)

                          Hi chokkidog

                          Reminds my of this link

                          Government Demotivator® - Demotivational posters from Despair.com

                          Too true to be funny given this week's "pre Xmas announcement rush".

                            Cheers Tampit,

                            Some truisms in those posters!

                            I was thinking more of little paper squares.... the ones that come on a roll! ;-)

                            Have a great Christmas!
