Actually, I think it's cool, but some words are really funny.





Shark biscuit : somebody new to surfing. :lol:

Rage : party

No drama : same as 'no worries'

Mystery bag : a sausage

Cactus : dead, not functioning ("this bloody washing machine is cactus")


I should learn this slang at the first place. It's ripper! 8-)

Blow in the bag : have a breathalyzer test

Brick shit house, built like a : big strong bloke

Brown-eyed mullet : a turd in the sea (where you're swimming!)

Bushman's hanky : Emitting nasal mucus by placing one index finger on the outside of the nose (thus blocking one nostril) and blowing.

Feral (n.) : a hippie



Gotta love Australian slang.

I don't like writer's block, I prefer to call it writer's parry.

Well, there's a special australian slang type called greeklish, it's used primarily by greeks but some words can sometimes be heard in common slang.


Here are some of the words I know.


booti = boot


fritza = fridge


tsounga = chewing gum


boxaki = box


hebrega = hamburger

Maximum fuck about to be given in 3... 2... 1...

Maybe I should show you guys some bro-speak.


Solle - Person

Gee - Person

Bro - Person

Shana - Person

'Sup - hello

T'sup - hello

Jandals - Flip flops/ thongs/ whatever the hell you guys call them

Whare - Home

Boot - The trunk of your car

Adding the word -as to the end of a word to intensify it's meaning e.g. cool --> cool as

Sweet - Awesome

Smashed - Beat someone up


That's not NZ slang, that's just bro-speak. Mostly derivatives of Maori and Polynesian words. A lot of that Aussie slang is NZ slang as well.


*EDIT* Here's some NZ slang-




I'll have you know that quite a few of those words are only used by rural's.
