Sounds like you have a clog in the vent pipe on the roof above that bathroom (most likely), or you have a leak in the wax seal or the drain line under the toilet.
Go up (carefully) on the roof, clear all leaves, debris, etc. from vent pipe, and flush it with a water hose sprayer.
If that doesn't solve the problem, you may need to rent a plumber's snake, and snake the drain/waste/vent pipe from top to bottom, and then flush it.
Good Luck! Mike
