Although I’ve resigned myself to the idea that I’ll never travel to Australia, I enjoy learning the culture of Australia and the unique character of the land down under. Bill Bryson wrote IN A SUNBURNED COUNTRY that detailed his travels in Australia, a book worth reading in part because he’s such a wonderful writer. He puts the reader right there in the cities and wilds of Australia.
The above list appeared on Facebook, and I thought I’d share it with you. I have a feeling that these terms are not universal in all of Australia, but I think someone in an area has assembled this special list of special words.
