A PORTABLE toilet block from a Maryborough service station ended up in Hervey Bay today after floodwaters carried it down the swollen Mary River.

Local jet ski operators, Aquavue Watersports, came across the floating loo on a trip across to Fraser Island.

They reported the toilet was still usable, although the paper was wet.
