Indeed, including the notion that it's used in the Australian Senate.
You'll recall the discussions that the South Australian Senate
understands the term, but they don't use it.  To quote the December
2003 core report:

- grog reports a discussion with a member of the SA Senate.  The term
  "unanimous consent" is not used in Australian politics, and it could
  be interpreted both ways.  Any interpretation would be subject to
  quorum requirements.
