Win prizes in ‘Great Dunny Hunt’ project

AS anyone caught short knows, the hunt for the nearest toilet can be stressful but even more so for the estimated five million of us suffering incontinence.

The Great Dunny Hunt is a nationwide effort to not only log the location of public loos online, but also to improve the information about them.
Nurse Continence Specialist for Western Sydney Local Health at Auburn, Joby Alex said Australia was pretty good when it came to public toilet accessibility.
“But we need to continually evolve those facilities to make sure that they meet everyone’s needs,” he said.
It can be treated, managed and cured, but urinary incontinence affects up to 10 per cent of Australian men and up to 38 per cent of Australian women.
“Health conditions like diabetes, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, MS, spinal cord injury, cardiac issues and joint replacements can potentially increase your risk,” Joby said.
The National Public Toilet Map – found at – shows the location of more than 22,000 toilet facilities nationwide.
This year organisers are keen to add details about other amenities, including baby change facilities, showers, drinking water and all-gender labelling.
