“Loo with a view” officially opened at Macalister Springs
Monday 2 December, 2013
The "Loo with a view" located at Macalister Springs in the Alpine National Park was officially opened today.
The "Loo with a view" replaces the old amenity that had begun to deteriorate and required significant maintenance. It is located next to the Vallejo Gantner Memorial Hut which is a popular spot for hikers located within the Alpine National Park.
The new facility features a beautiful design that blends in with the surrounding landscape and the architects deliberately designed the "Loo with a view" to compliment the design of the Vallejo Gantner Memorial Hut.
The angular-shaped windows inside the amenity will certainly prove popular with hikers and photographers alike for the stunning views it offers of the Alpine National Park.
Parks Victoria Ranger In Charge Mike Dower said we were delighted with the end result considering the difficulty the architects and contractors faced in building such a facility in a remote and difficult location.
The official opening of "Loo with a view" was made even more special with the attendance of the Gantner family, in particular Neilma Gantner, who was formally recognised for her 40-year contribution to environmental management in the Alpine National Park. The Ganter family have a long association with this special site and we are particularly proud of the strong working relationship that local Parks Victoria rangers have developed with the Gantner family over this time.
"It meant a great deal to the Parks Victoria team to have the Gantner family present at the opening today, as the Gantner Hut has been a popular site for over 40 years", said Chris Rose, Parks Victoria General Manager-Regions. "And the site will no doubt become even more popular now and we look forward to welcoming visitors to this special part of the world".
