Disabled and want to travel to Australia? No worries
mate, Australia is well prepared for travelling disabled people
and has wheel chair friendly accommodation and tours in many places.
Worried about finding a toilet somewhere? No worries either, to
assist the elderly and disabled travellers the AussieGovernment
put together the website Toiletmap.gov.au
that lists more than 14,295 of Australia's public toilets!
To make it even more high tech this dunny-directory has
now joined up with Google Earth to provide satellite images
of the loo locations!
If you are in a remote location with no internet cafe to go
and look up the nearest urination location on this website
you can also phone the national toilet hotline for free on
1800 990 646 from within Australia, or if you like to plan
ahead you can ring them before your arrival in Australia from
overseas on 61 3 6211 3230.
You can also fax for the nearest dunny on 03 6211 3222 within
Australia or from overseas on 61 3 6211 3222, or send an email
or call the translation line on 13 1450 if you want to ask
for the nearest dunny if you don't speak English or Australian.
