Australia building $278,000 solar toilet

The state of Western Australia will spend $278,000 to install a solar toilet near a spot popular with social media users.

The Crawley edge boat shed is a wooden house on the Swan River that’s painted bright blue.

It’s one of the region’s most popular spots for photos that end up on sites like Instagram.

Unfortunately, the location is not exactly easy to access and there aren’t any public facilities close by. So authorities in the city of Perth will construct a solar-powered toilet for visitors.

Once it’s built, maintenance will cost another $14,000 year
