Australian's pride themselves on being easy-going and informal. The Aussie Slang Dictionary reflects these qualities with its colour, humour and inventiveness.

For visitors to the country, we hope this guide will unlock what might seem a coded language!

For the fair dinkum Aussies, use this book to expand your daily vocabulary and increase your appreciation of our wonderful and unique way of communicating.

I browsed the book through yesterday in order to release it next Saturday in Uutela ;) Seeing Uluru mentioned reminded me that climbing it (Ayers Rock) will be prohibited in October 2019. It would be quite an experience to climb it! Uluru is a major landmark and it is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Getting there is not that easy, Uluru is located in a National Park in central Australia and the nearest large town, Alice Springs, is 450 km by road.

Many phrases and words in the book are of course familiar, but then there are new fun ones like sharkbait or shark biscuit, bush telly or "needed like a back pocket in a t-shirt" :) But the main thing is that all these slang words prove how laid-back people Aussies are :)
