Awesome Australian Slang

I was surfing the net as usual and I came across a site which had an awesome collection of Australian slang. If you’ve watched the late Steve Irwin’s documentary, crocodile hunter, you should more or less know what I’m saying. For Australians, it may be common, but for a foreigner, it’s hilarious!

Australian Explorer divided the collection into 7 different categories. Mainly

  • Animals
  • Behaviour
  • Events
  • Objects
  • People
  • Phrases
  • Places

Here are a few sentences I’ve made up consisting of Australian slang.

A bogan and a bloke were in the blue when they suddenly heard a ruckus. They walked closer and saw jackaroo and jillaroo flat out having a naughty. Then, a milko and a larrikin came and they raged on.

Got it mate? =)
