The greatest dunny of them all...

Sharing a fun and quirky entrance to a private residence at Silverton, 25 klms. from Broken Hill, N.S.W.  This proclaimed 'ghost-town' does indulge though in attracting good numbers of tourists.  What an eye-opener; I'm so glad I got to visit Silverton!

This was an Outback Dunny, at the front!  Must add, I didn't use 'the dunny' (Aussie slang for outside toilet) depicted here; I just wanted to give you all a great big Silverton smile for now.





...all fuelled up and longing for that next trip to town

LOL! That's awesome! I love the sign and the feet showing below the door! Somebody has a good sense of humor!

This post sure made me smile! So funny. We have an outhouse, too, so I can definitely see the humor in it. I don't think we'll be putting our "dunny" in the front yard, though.
Thanks for sharing and starting my day of right--with a good laugh.

This place looks fun. I met a lady from Sidney while at Bodie and I remarked on how I suspected Australia would have a lot of ghost towns but she insisted that there were next to none. Maybe the occasional waystation with a building or two but that was it.

What a fun post, I love the paint job on the "bug"!

Filip and Kristel said...

The "Kever" or bug car looks nice, good paintwork.

Greetings,

Fun post. I love the painted bug. Reminds me of the Hippies in the 60's. I'm going to have to remember to use the word "dunny" and see if anyone here knows what it is.

Nancy said...

What a cute and earthy little place ... love the VW Bug! :)

Laura said...

Carole, your blog is always interesting and fun! Great photos! Love seeing your "neck of the woods" and learning the different ways we name things! When I saw the word "dunny" I had no idea ... What fun!

Laura said...

Carole, I love seeing all the different places through your camera lens. Your photos are fantastic! Thanks!

That brings back memories, the outside dunny! Always needed to check for spiders before you sat on it, and there was no such thing as toilet paper back then, just some newspaper hanging on a hook......we're so spoilt these days!

Hahaha! But can't believe I missed a) this post and b) the actual dunny - I've been to Silverton a couple of times!!! I have got a few OZ dunny shots people have sent me that I'm planning to put in a post one day soon ... if I actually find time to do it, can I include this one???
