"Howyagoen mate" or "G'day mate!" is a great place to start!
Aussies are very well known for the use of our Australian slang
For the non Australian it can be some what confusing. It can also be a fabulous lot of fun.
Over the past few years a number of websites have sprung up dedicated to Australian Slang.
The slang developed from the early Australian settlement days and has stayed with us through time.
Not only do AUSTRALIANS use slang, we have a unique accent that is very recognisable around the world. Most people will remember, from the television commercial with a famous Australian Mr. Paul Hogan, the statement he made, "I'll just put another shrimp on the Barbie"! Of course he was talking about the Bar-B-Q not the doll.
You will have fun learning about Australian slang and how Aussies speak.
"Now go off ere an enjoy-yaself,
grab ya mate or ya sheila and hava SQUIZ AROUND"
