We Aussies are, after all, a very different lot; our sense of humour is legendary but very difficult sometimes for our visitors to understand, for example, where else in the world would you find that the redheads in the community are all nicknamed Blue or Bluey”?

Things are often expressed as a contradiction, Aussies know what it all means but a visitor has Buckleys, (to have “Buckleys” or “Buckleys chance”) means you have no chance…)

To find a more comprehensive list of the Aussie Stuff we have on the site go to our sitemap you’ll find it all there.

If you re from the old dart, that s England, and you understand a little cockney rhyming slang then you ve got a head start on most people because the Aussie rhyming slang has its origins in the East End of London, however, it has developed and changed over the years to suit Australia and Australians.

You can find out a little more about the Australian language right here, including some of the more common Aussie slang words and phrases.
