[Blog Post] 10 Ways To Tell If You’re Australian..

Totally tongue-in-cheek Aussie humour – here are 10 ways to tell if you’re Australian with brief explanations for our visitors from overseas – see if any apply to you!

You know you’re Australian when: 
  1. You still think of Kylie Minogue as “That girl from Neighbours” (Long-running Australian TV Soap).
  2. You know that many people have the impression that everyone in Australia is just like Steve Irwin or Crocodile Dundee (Crikey, we’re not quite like that, you know!).
  3. You know that Sydney 2000 was one of our proudest moments in history – we rock! (The Sydney Olympics was a wonderful event for all Australians – we’re very proud!).
  4. One Simple Word: Skippy (the smartest TV kangaroo to ever live, 6 or 7 times!).
  5. You know that there is a universal place called “woop woop” located in the middle of nowhere… no matter where you actually are (if someone lives out of the main cities, it’s generally said that they live out in “woop woop”).
  6. You have some time in your life slept with Aeroguard on in the summer – maybe even used it as perfume (Aeroguard is bug spray you can spray or roll on to your skin, very useful for keeping the “mozzies” away).
  7. You say “no worries” quite often, whether you realise it or not (no worries is our version of “not a problem”).
  8. You’ve ordered a piece of meat the size of your head and only paid $15.00 for it at your local RSL club (Returned Servicemen’s Leagues Clubs – a great place to eat and have a few drinks at a great price!).
  9. You think footballers dressing up in drag on TV is funny (seems to be a very popular activity among our “football” players, that is, Rugby League and AFL, NOT Soccer).
  10. You believe that “stubbies” can either be worn or drunk (a small bottle of beer is a stubby, as are short mens shorts!).
We’re as Aussie as you get round here mate, because every one of these is familiar to us – how about you??
