Australian Toilets

Here the toilets are called bathrooms, but within each toilet is an actual toilet.  And with each toilet after you go to the bathroom you have the option to do a full flush or a half flush.  It is quite strange.

I understand the concept of conserving water and all, but I do get tired of thinking after each time I use the toilet--should I do a full or half flush?  Australia is very environmentally conscientious which is good and all, but to a point.  I have used several composting toilets.  That's a little much if you ask me.

I am looking forward to when I am back in the USA and I can simply flush the toilet without the added pressure of which flush to choose.

That is probably more than enough toilet information for you. 
By the way, the bathrooms today were soap less. 


  1. Bathrooms in foreign countries area always so weird! There were a few bathrooms in the UK that had the half flush option as well. Odd.

  2. What an interesting and odd option. Now I have another bit of trivia floating around...LOL.


  3. LOL, what about a 3/4 flush? Great blog, can't wait to read more. I'm your newest follower from IComLeavWe.


  4. I always liked the idea of half flush/full flush. It sure beats the american "low flush" toilets that are sometimes far too "low". Also beats the "if it's yellow, let it mellow" which is a rule some people I know follow. *ick*
