6/26 New Things Challenge: Visit Melbourne’s loo with a view


As far as toilet experiences go, my encounters with loos this year whilst travelling S.E Asia have been pretty horrific . One that sticks in mind was the sleeper train toilet in Thailand which wasn’t so much a toilet but rather a hole that dropped down onto the tracks surrounded by some footholds. This made the loos on England’s South Eastern trains look like a real treat!


But earlier this week I had a different experience when I visited to the ‘loo with the view’ way up on the 35th floor at the Sofitel Hotel, Collins Street, Melbourne. I read about this loo on a blog a while back and was keen to visit and take in the much hyped about view of Melbourne’s city for free! Yes free, that’s $19.50 cheap than the Eureka Skydeck’s view.

And here it is…

Apparently in the men’s toilets, because of the urinals, you can even tinkle as you take in the spectacular view from the wall of glass!

Out of all my toileting experiences this sure is up* there.
