Day 14. Chuck-a-uey

Since the free shuttle from Port Douglas to Cairns was right in the middle of the day, I spent most of today traveling and working. Instead of explaining what my computer screen looks like, I thought I’d share some Aussie slang. Here’s what I know so far:

  • Tassie = Tasmania
  • Breeky = Breakfast
  • Busting = Really need to use the toilet
  • Whingeing – Whining (CHECK SPELLING)
  • Chuck-a-uey = Make a U-turn. (This is my favorite as I say make a uey and people back home look at me funny.)
  • Puffed Out = Out of breath
  • Sealed = Paved Road
  • You’ve got Buckley’s = You’ve got no chance
