Public toilets at White Night
Toilets will be in place in Carlton Gardens for those northside who are in need of relief. Don't be put off by artist Christopher Langton's menagerie of larger-than-life inflatable toys and cartoon animals – think of them as helpful woodland sprites to guide your way.
Visiting The State Library for its spectacular projection art 'The Secret Life of Books' is a White Night must do, as is hitting up the loos around the corner from the installation. You can also use the toilet inside the State Library, if you want more marble and less portaloo.
If you've decided to spend part of your night exploring the wonder that is the NGV Triennial (and we recommend that you do), you might want to also make use of the gallery's toilets. They're not fancy, but they're clean and plentiful – and on White Night that is a rare and delightful combo.
If you've just arrived and you realise you forgot to go at Flinders Street Station, help is on the way just one block north. The station itself will also be decked out with the projection 'What If?' This public toilet answers the question, "what if you're busting"?
The video installation 'Cats vs the World' is probably going to be worth a visit, with the added bonus that you can actually take a load off and sit down for a little while. But even better, ACMI has indoor toilets – we're not kitten, that'll make you purr.
Hamer Hall will offer an oasis of calm amidst the White Night madness. 'Tara the Liberator' is a 14-metre painting of Taras (the female Buddha), and there will be mediation sessions throughout the night. The Arts Centre has what you need for the body as well as the spirit, with probably the cleanest, poshest toilets available on the night.
If you've spent too long being mesmerised by 'Liquid Sky' – and suddenly realised you're in danger of liquid trousers – luckily there is a toilet in nearby Biarrung Marr.
Ever wonder how astronauts pee in space? The eight-metre inflatable astronaut 'Calling Occupants' doesn't have to worry about it, but you do. Luckily there are also public toilets in Alexandra Gardens.
