My group are studying Aussie Slang and i found this wonderful link. Austrailia came from Australis which means 'of the south' in latin.. Austrailia was first used round a bout 1962 in england. G'day mate basically means hello.

the names

Angie

Lizzie

Maz

Woz.

Anyway here is a slang sentance:

"G' day lizze lets throw anotha shrimp on the barbie."

the phrase ''g ' day mate" was popularised by a guy named Paul Hogan.
