Are There Public Toilets At The Orchid Beach Trading Post?
The shop doesn’t particularly like people using their toilets, because it puts a lot of strain on their septic
system. So I’m pretty sure that door’s is always locked.
If you drink at the bar they’ll give you the key or they’ll let you in. So you can use the toilets if you’re using their facilities, IE: spend the money at the bar drinking beer.
Otherwise they’ve got the public toilets around the side of the Trading Post, which is great.
These toilets are only fairly new before they were built there was nowhere else.
You had to drive back down to the beach to Waddy Point Campground and use the toilets down there.
This popular trading post has been serving locals and tourists since the early 1930s.
