How do you call a public "bathroom" in Ireland, England, Scotland, and Australia?

In the United States they're called "restrooms" and in Canada they're called "washrooms". How do you call them in Ireland, England, Scotland, and Australia??

Just curious... that's it! Thanks! ;)

in the UK - signs usually say toilets, on the door either ladies or gents or disabled or baby change, when speaking we say the loo or toilet or occasionally (but rather twee) the little girls room or the little boys room, WC (short for water closet)

Toilet, WC (short for water closet but full term never used), or just "Ladies" and "Gents". A bathroom has a bath in it, a restroom a bed!

They can also be called the privy, bog or the khazi. Friends of ours have a sign on their loo door that says "necessarium", which is a privy in an ancient castle.

I call it a public toilet. There isn't just one name for it though. Some people just call it a toilet, loo, bathroom etc.

Water Closet or labeled WC. I've heard the word loo used as well.

I'm from Scotland and I say "i'm going to to toilet" But in England it's more commonly referred to as the loo.
