Coromandel Pinnacles

Hi there, Probably silly questions - but it's been many years since I've been tramping in NZ. With the Pinnacles hut - do we need to bring our own toilet paper? (wasn't sure if this is supplied with the toilets up there?) Is the water in the hut safe for drinking without first boiling/sterilising etc? And one last question (for now)- re breakfasts - most people talk about having cereal/porridge - but what do you put on it? For such a short tramp, I guess you could take a small amount of normal milk (not super hot at the moment - so would prob keep til morning?). Not thrilled about taste of milk powder. Family talking about toasting bread in pan - (yes, aware that have to take a spread). Thanks for reading (and for being patient with beginners!)

...Pinnacles Hut does not stock toilet paper however it’s common for people to leave some behind.
Getting back to my favourite subject, french toast is lovely as well. I recently bought Paul and Rebecca Garland's Backcountry Cooking book. Insane amounts of sugar in the recipes - including savoury mains loaded with sweetening dried fruit etc. But great as a springboard for ideas.
