English in the Land Down Under

Trivia Quiz It has been said that the English and Americans are the same people separated by a common language. The same can be said for our friends from the Southern Hemisphere. After meeting a few Aussies, and consulting the Australian English Glossary I had to write this quiz. So come take an Australian rules English language walk about.

The American south has similarities in that the terms and accents
used are unlike anything else anywhere.

I am ashamed I had two wrong. A Barbie is a doll for me it is not a grill it is a barbecue and how I missed jumbuck I have no excuse. A kip is also a place to sleep or a home it comes from "kipsie" Over all I thought the quiz was bonzer and coming from a septic is fair dinkum little bottler.
