You’re Welcome Accesswa
This site has a search facility to find accessible business and community facilities in Western Australia. Access information is provided to assist people of all ages and abilities, including people who use a wheelchair, have difficulty walking or who are blind or deaf. The site also has diagrams of toilets and bathrooms to choose what suits you best.
If you are unable to find an accessible public toilet both Hungry Jack’s and McDonald’s have wheelchair accessible toilets.
National Public Toilet Map
The Australian Government has a website which lists all disabled access toilets and ACROD parking in Australia. You can also plan a route from nearly any starting point to any destination in Australia, the system will identify the quickest route (by road or on foot) and create a list of nearby toilets. You can then select only those toilets that you require and create a report which you can print for future reference, download to your GPS device or send to a friend.
The Rottnest Island Authority is gradually improving access on the island (access information available here).
