Thinking of height in terms of feet, is probably the only element of the imperial system which is still commonly retained in Australia.
Up until about 20 years ago you'd still have old farts talking in Fahrenheit occasionally. When they wanted to complain about the heat they'd go, "It's a hundred degrees out there!" because that's a higher number than 37 C. Similarly on cold days they'd switch to centigrade because those are lower numbers.
