THINGS N T TO DOIN AUSTRALIAFAHMI MEGA NIKEN VINY
Australians call those tasty crustaceans
“prawns”, not “shrimp”, and saying
that tired cliché won’t win you any friends
Don’t Say“Put Another Shrimp On The Barbie”
Don’t Go to Fraser Island with an
One of the popular things to do as a backpacker in Australia is a self-drive 4WD trip to Fraser Island. However, make sure that you have an experienced 4WD driver in your posse who can handle sandy stretches, dirt paths, creeks and other challenging conditions.
Don’t Take Beach Safety Signs Lightly
When you see those warning signs about crocodiles, jellyfish, sharks, octopus and other dangers on the beach, go on and take a picture – but take them seriously, too.
DON’T UNDERESTIMATE DISTANCES
Australia is one huge landmass. In
fact, England can fit into Australia
almost 60 times.
Tipping is not the custom in Australia. Service workers are paid a fair wage
Don’t Climb Uluru
Not everyone is aware, however, that the local Anangu people prefer tourists not to climb Uluru because of its spiritual significance to them.
Don’t Just Ask
For A BeerBrush up on your beer lingo before hitting an Aussie watering hole. There’s a whole amber fluid slang you need to learn before a trip down under, with some regional variations thrown in just to confuse you.
Don’t Surf Without Knowing The Etiquette
There’s a strong surfing culture in Australia and its a great place to give the sport a try.
Don’t Diss Vegemite
Brits have their Marmite, so similar Vegemite isn’t such a foreign concept to them.
The trick is to go easy on it. A little dab is flavor heaven; a thick glop and your tongue will be overwhelmed.
DO NOT“ROOT”FOR A TEAM
That word has a different meaning down under than it does elsewhere. “Root” is the local word for “f*ck”
DON’T FORGET A HAT, SUNSCREEN, AND MOZZIE SPRAY
Slip on a shirt, slop on the
sunscreen and slap on a hat has become a
mantra in Australia, and tourists would
be wise to follow suit.
DON’T ASK THE LOCALS IF THEY ARE RELATED TO CONVICTS
Some Aussies are proud of their rough and tumble heritage, but others prefer to move beyond this backstory. You probably won’t endear yourself to the locals if you constantly bring up the topic, especially if you’re a “Pom”.
Don’t Belive Stories Of Drop Bears
Drop bear lore is legendary down under. Even the Australian Museum is in on the gag, helping to perpetuate the myth of this predatory marsupial.
Don’t Feed or Pet The Dingoes
They may look like cute pooches you’d have as a pet, but Australian dingos are wild dogs!!.
Don’t Buy a Cheap 2nd Hand Car Without a Mechanical Inspection
Just be aware that wear and tear in Australia can be significant, especially if the previous owners have logged a lot of miles down harsh roads. Some of these fleeting owners aren’t the best at vehicle maintenance.
Don’t Be OffendedBy Local Sarcasm or SlangThat being said, Aussies are known for their sarcasm, dry-wit and self-deprecating sense of humor.
Hands-free carrying belts may be practical, but they are hopelessly out of style. But its more the word that’s the problem here. “Fanny” may mean
“backside” in North America but in Australia (and Britain), the word is used for “female genitalia”. Use the word “bum bag” for those dorky things
unless you want to raise some eyebrows.
The word that does matter!
Don’t Wear a “Fanny” Pack
Don’t Go to The Gold Coast During Schoolies Weeks
Queensland’s Gold Coast is a popular
tourist destination for local and
international tourists alike. It’s known
for its sun-kissed beaches, surfing
action, hopping night life, good
shopping, theme parks, casinos and
There are just so many things that could go wrong out there, including menacing flora and fauna, thick vegetation or lack thereof, excessive heat and dehydration concerns, and just the sheer vastness of territory to get hopelessly lost in.
Don’t Go Off Track in the Bush
Don’t Just Stick to the Big Cities
SYDNEY BRISBANE MELBOURNE PERTH
Sure, check out the urban pleasures like Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and
• ALICE SPRINGS • COOBER PEDY • GOOLWA
• PORT DOUGLAS • LAUNCESTON • MISSION BEACH
Some of Australia’s smaller towns have a ton of “fair dinkum” Aussie charm that will round out your trip.
