Australian Slang to Know Before You Go

Funny Australian Slang and Sayings

Upon arriving in Australia, I knew that there were going to be some words that I didn’t quite recognize or understand the meaning to. I’ve compiled a list of some of the most used Australian Slang to help other travelers avoid the strange looks that I was so fortunate to receive.


Australia is definitely a unique place to be, but Aussies always know how to put a smile on my face. Post in the comments and tell me of any funny stories involving mixed up words/slang errors during your travels!

    Hahah yes! Although I hear “swimmers” for swimsuit, I think I’ve heard togs though too! “Poppers” got me too, aka juice boxes! Being au pair comes with its whole new set of words it feels like!
