Australian English has developed a rich and distinct vocabulary that some would say reflects our dry wit and occasional wisdom. Explore the origins and meanings of our common Australian words and idioms, and test your knowledge of Australian English.

The definitions in Aussie English for the Beginner have been provided by the Australian National Dictionary Centre and the cartoons developed by David Pope.
