These Illustrations Will Show You The Meanings Of Australian Idioms

 

Every culture has its own sayings and idioms, but to the outsider, these can be pretty confusing. Australia has its fair share of bizarre idioms, so if you're planning a trip down under, or have Aussie friends, then you might find yourself wondering what everyone's talking about. Hotel Club got Australian illustrator Jared Atkins to draw some visuals to help explain things. These handy illustrations will shed some light on some of the most popular Aussie sayings, so you won't have to "spit the dummy" every time someone comes out with an idiom you don't know. Check them out!
