Black stump

Tomorrow is Australia Day but I wonder how many of my visitors to my various blogs really know how to speak Australian. This is called ‘strine’ .

Try translating the following:

The bludger was watching the aerial ping pong on the box and using the Aussie salute.

The Aussie battler was away with the fairies and had burnt the bangers and mash.

Use this website to create some Aussie sentences and leave them in the comments here.

If you are not Australian, what are some words you use that we would have trouble understanding?
