Kanyana National Park

Off grid toilets

Challenge

Kanyana Park is a lookout point with beautiful views out over Moreton Bay. Approximately 16,000 to 20,000 people visit the park annually. There is only tank water on the site, no sewerage and no electricity so a composting toilet was the most practical and economical solution.

Solution

Satisfied with the performance of the original Clivus Multrum toilets, which had been destroyed in a fire, Sunshine Coast Regional Council decided to replace and upgrade the facilities. In 2011 new buildings were designed and built to accommodate two CM8 waterless composting toilets.

Benefits

  • Save up to 50,000 litres of water a year that would be required for traditional flush toilets
  • Ongoing maintenance is minimal and at a low cost
  • The toilets are hygienic and odourless which makes for a pleasant experience for park visitors.
