7 Common Things in Australia That are Weird Elsewhere

Australia is a world apart - both literally and figuratively speaking. It's a land beyond the ocean that is different from what other people might even imagine in ways they might even not think about. Here are 7 common things in Australia which is weird elsewhere


Thongs a.k.a Flip-flops are the best


Australians love their thongs as much as they love vegemite. They wear thongs a.k.a. flip flops whenever they can, while the brave ones will venture to their local shops barefoot. Try pulling that elsewhere and you'll get weird sideways looks.


Flat white any day


The earliest documented reference to the beverage dates back to Australia in the mid-1980s. Flat white is punchier thanks to the higher espresso ratio, smaller amount of milk and a velvety micro-foam, which is less heavy than a cappuccino equivalent. Any Australian would prefer a flat white over cappuccino or latte.


Poker Machines in Pubs


"Pokies" , is something you'd only find in casinos in the rest of the developed world but in Australia, they are everywhere. The pokies are usually found in a row in a special "gaming room" at the back of a pub, which is populated by pensioners, bored tradies and even tourists.

Goon of Fortune


Goon of Fortune is an Australian drinking game between any numbers of individual people. The name of the game is a spoof on the TV show Wheel of Fortune. This game to Australians is the rite of passage to adulthood.


Sausage sizzle as a Community Event


There's more to the Australian sausage sizzle than sliced white bread, sausages on a barbecue, plus the choice of tomato or barbecue sauce — with the occasional appearance of mustard or grilled onion. It is part of the Australian culture, sausage sizzles are generally held either as free community events or as fundraisers for charities, schools, sports clubs and other organisations. Fundraising sausage sizzles have become particularly associated with elections in Australia and the hardware chain Bunnings Warehouse.


Shortening words


From Maccas to selfie, Australians shorten any word they can. These shortened words, known as diminutives, are commonly used as an act of endearment and as a way to fit in. While the use of diminutives is not unique to Australia, the sheer amount of them used in the country is pretty staggering: It is estimated that 4,000 of these shortened words are used in everyday Australian language.


You slip, slop, and slap


Australia is located right below a huge hole in the ozone layer, meaning that ultraviolet rays blaze year around. Because of this, sunburn and skin cancer are a continual threat, so tanning is a no-no and Aussie kids are taught from a young age to “slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, and slap on a hat,” to protect themselves.
