Last Wednesday, October 5, we visited Byron Bay  with eight of our family members up from Canberra for the week.

We took them to our favourite beach – Wategos – and the lighthouse.

Much to our disappointment both the male and female toilets at Wategos were not a pleasant experience (disgusting). They were very unclean to overflowing and so much so my nephew refused to use the men’s.

The council charges $8 to park at the beaches and lighthouse, why can’t they ensure the facilities are kept in better condition? This was two days after a long weekend in school holidays. Just imagine if our visitors were from overseas – not a good impression for our tourism industry.

I wanted to voice my great disappointment and hope that Byron Council can ensure the toilets are clean.
