    Does this mean it turn anti clockwise, in southern hemisphere?
    only asking? I think it has something to do with the earth gravity
    like a magnet north polarity,south polarity.

    if your right on the equator it comes straight at you
    yes the water goes down the drain anti-clockwise in the southern hemisphere and vise vest in the northern hemisphere created by the magnetic field of both poles.
    It's called the coriolis effect.
    They are corellas nomdeplume, do they fly round and round causing the water to spin?

    Coriolis is that Italian restaurant in Burke Street.
    nomdeplume

    If you don't believe me google 'coriolis effect'
    Which Burke St? Melbourne?

    Yes it does because in the southern hemisphere, you know like Australia, we are backward.
