Automatic public toilets
Hygienic, safe and accessible toilets are available for your convenience throughout the local area.
Fully automatic facilities – where the toilet bowl and floor is cleaned and disinfected after use – have been installed close to major parks. Instructions in writing (and in Braille) are clearly displayed in each one. Audio instructions are available too.
Each toilet visit is capped at 20 minutes. An alarm sounds well before the door opens. Though it is rarely needed, there is an emergency button to link the user directly to the operator of the facility.
Parents should enter with small children, as the automatic sensors are activated by 25 kilograms of pressure.
The automatic toilet facilities below are open 24 hours a day and cost 50 cents to use.
- Hyde Park (North and South)
- Belmore Park (near Central Station)
- Lang Park
- Wynyard Park
- Ward Park (Surry Hills)
- Circular Quay (Alfred Street)
Pensioners, people with a disability and disadvantaged people can collect free tokens to use in the toilets listed above from any of our Neighbourhood Service Centres.

- Fitzroy Gardens (Kings Cross)
- Joynton Park, Tote Park and Nuffield Park (Zetland).
