    Sorry but my flush toilet in Hopkins Hall in Hobart is still working and dates back to 1835. I can send you a photograph.

      That’s fascinating! The claim of the oldest toilet is made by the hotel, but I’m intrigued about yours – I’ll email you…

        Sent you photographs – and additional information on – Ironmonger C Davis who’s name is on the toilet cast iron tank with pull-chain. Hope you enjoy the photographs, kind regards, Neville

    I did mean to also say that C Davis was a convict.
