Have just completed a trip from Hope Valley in South Australia to the Perth suburb of South Lake, reason being to visit my children and grand children
My original intention was to over night in selected roadside stops, all i can say is if the amount of poo tickets and associated rubbish is how people treat this great land heaven help the next generation, the graffiti artist at the lookouts on the Great Australian Bight should have been chucked over the cliffs if caught.

Hello Gotlost
We are in our mid seventies.
What you are describing has been the case for the last sixty years except for the spray can graffiti.
However there are many roadside toilets in appropriate places they even need cleaning contractors employed to look after sections of highway.
Living is a journey,it depends on where you go !

The matches got quite a workout on those wandering tickets everytime we stopped on our Simpson crossing.

We did/do the same. We presume it’s probably a minority making the mess and also minority doing the cleaning up as well. Of course, Not just poo tickets but other rubbish as well.
It’s probably never going to change. Thankfully there are some of us that clean up or imagine the mess!
Cheers

We either use roadside, campground or Caravan Park toilets and also take a portable toilet with us. There are plenty of dump points these days, all are free. Maybe it's time for everyone to carry a portable toilet and every few days, dig a decent hole if no dump point is available. With the amount of people travelling these days, the problem will only get worse. Michael.

We found the same travelling the Nullarbor, found it to be worse in South Australia as very few if any roadside stops had toilets. We now know what S.A. stands for Sh*t Any ware.

Yes, I think that caveman kids got their bum smacked for leaving hand prints on the wall. :-)
