Aussie Slang Words

Another cold morning with sore stinging feet, Jess has gone to work and I have rung Sam to get him out of bed and now for some Aussie slang word that some will know some may not.

Grog........Liquor as in beer, wine and spirits

Greenie.....Environmentalist

Grundies.....Underwear named for Reg Grundy a TV personality

Grouse......Great terrific or very good

Garbo......Rubbish collector

  1. I would have thought a word like grouse would have went the other way. So why did Grundy get underwear named after him?

  2. Have heard of the first three. But I thought a grouse would be a complainer.
    I hope you get some slippers with grippers on the bottom or a rubber sole soon!
