That's just typical of these left-wing commie Aussies!
They deliberately design all their toilets to swirl to the left like
all true toilets should, just to confuse the US tourists.

their toilets from the US so that their staff and visitors can have
the comfort of a true right-wing swirl. Ooooh! Ecstasy!
