You know you are ... (2)

You know you are in a the country when the dunny is still in situ, even though it fell into disuse 30 or more years ago.

Lyrics from the well known Australian country music song by Slim Newton (listen)
"There was a redback on the toilet seat,
When I was there last night.
I didn't see him in the dark,
But boy I felt his bite.
I jumped up high into the air,
And when I hit the ground.
That crafty redback spider,
Wasn't nowhere to be found."


  1. I love this dunny! And the CI ... and the weathered fence posts.

    Cant get CTS more different than hollyhocks and disused dunnies.

Gundagai exploring

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
