On a car here, it's called the "hood". There, it's called the "bonnet".

On a car here, it's called the "trunk". There, it's called the "boot".

Here, "bloody" is what you are after poking yourself with a screwdriver.

There, "bloody" is a modifier for the word "Hell".:)

Take care - Elden:wave:

Just a few that come to mind

spanner -> wrench
shifter -> adjustable wrench (although I've also heard it as adj shifter)
grub screw -> set screw
big end -> connecting rod bearing
arvo -> afternoon
root -> wink nudge say no more :p
flat out like a lizard drinking -> very busy
pot -> 10oz beer in Vic and Qld varies by state
slab -> carton of 25 stubs or cans
coldie -> cold beer
stub/stubbie -> short necked beer bottle

I love going to Oz and hearing all these Aussisms. The accent is pretty cool to! :D

Nick you missed a few:

a 750ml bottle of beer can be known as a king brown! or long neck!

A six pack has nothing to do with the jim/fitness centre and working on your musscle tone; but rather 1/4 of a slab of beer. Usually in cans 350ml.

and skid marks are not something you find on the road way, rather a stinky mark in your underwear!
