Typical Australian Sayings

  • G’Day!”
    * “It’s better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.”
    * “She’ll be right.”
    * “And down from Kosciusko, where the pine clad ridges raise their torn and rugged battlements on high, where the air is clear as crystal, and the white stars fairly blaze at midnight in the cold and frosty sky.
    And where, around the overflow, the reed beds sweep and sway to the breezes, and the rolling plains are wide. The Man from Snowy River is a household word today, and the stockmen tell the story of his ride.”
    Tips to Surviving Australia:
    * Don’t ever put your hand down a hole for any reason whatsoever. We mean it.
    * The beer is stronger than you think, regardless of how strong you think it is.
    * Always carry a stick.
    * Air-conditioning.
    * Do not attempt to use Australian slang, unless you are a trained linguist and good in a fist fight.
    * Thick socks.
    * Take good maps. Stopping to ask directions only works when there are people nearby.
    * If you leave the urban areas, carry several litres of water with you at all times, or you will die.
    * Even in the most embellished stories told by Australians, there is always a core of truth that it is unwise to ignore.
