Bill Rawlinson, Brunswick Heads

A week before Australia Day I reported to the Byron Shire Council on the shocking state of the men’s toilets in Banner Park in Brunswick Heads. Nothing happened.

Late February I went  again to the council and the council depot said the council does not clean the toilets and gave me the caravan park’s number to call. I didn’t.

Then a council vehicle arrives to unlock the doors. Sometimes the floors are hosed but often only the toilet paper is replaced. The urinal has a thick yellow slime and the stench is overwhelming.
