Toss another shrimp on the barbie, crack open a tinny or pour yourself a chardy while you traverse Australia’s vast expanse of true blue, fair dinkum Aussie lingo – from cosmopolitan communiqué to surf slang, outback jargon and some of the world’s oldest indigenous languages. C’mon, avagoyermug!

Features a comprehensive section on Australia’s impressive array of indigenous languages.

Lonely Planet’s Language & Culture series goes behind the scenes of languages you thought you knew. Get into the culture and humour behind common – and not so common – English expressions and learn about the local languages that inspired them.
