Aussie Slang Examples That People Elsewhere in the World Don't Understand

by Edmund

The average Aussie has slipped some sort of slang in their day to day only to travel to another part of the world and have the locals not understand what they are trying to say. Personally, I use the word "mate" more than any person should. Here are some examples of other Aussie slang that is incredibly common to Australians but makes no sense to our friends elsewhere in the world.
