"Instagram-worthy, that is all." Such is one traveler's review of the Crawley Edge Boatshed on TripAdvisor. The Perth, Australia, attraction—if it can be called that—is a house colored an Instagram-perfect shade of blue sitting on the Swan River. CNN reports it's the "most photographed travel attraction" in the city, and that has caused a problem. Located near a residential neighborhood, there are no public bathrooms nearby. That will soon change.
The Perth City Council in late May approved funding for the installation of a solar-powered toilet, at a cost of $278,000. The council cited complaints from a nearby restaurant owner who said visitors were increasingly using his facilities at a cost to him, and that there had been incidents of vandalism and verbal abuse involving them. The new toilet is expected to be completed by August. Australian Geographic reports the original boatshed was thought to have been erected in that location in the 1930s; it was rebuilt over the years. (The results of an Instagram poll may have spurred tragedy.)
