Lots of fun. How about true blue for truth or genuine. I believe it fits. Also aussie rules for afl. And maybe gogglebox for tv.

I've never heard goggle box before! Or "bush telly"? Yeah, I tried true blue and dinky di before I realised what it meant too. And aussie rules and afl for footy too. Also, spelling for jillaroo and jackaroo should allow jilleroo and jackeroo

I've never heard of bush telly. I guessed bushfire!! No one rarely calls Australia Oz, I've never called it that. I've called it Aussie/Ozzie, and austrya or ostraya. NRL (National Rugby League) is also called footy. I lie could also be known as a whitie. I lie that causes cause pain. It is used to get out of sticky situations.

How I know this, I live in the country.

I think the overall problem is seeing if Australian slang is even slang at all. Let alone if we aussies even use them haha!

Half of these are really nicknames here 'Down Under' not slang. And i usually call a television just 'tv' and my family poke fun at each other by joking that we have told 'porkies'. So maybe mention NICKNAMES, NICKNAMES, NICKNAMES, NICKNAMES, NICKNAMES, NICKNAMES, NICKNAMES, NICKNAMES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
