    Check this book out, The Pengiuin Book of Australian Slang by Lenie Midge Johansen. I think the ABC has a word map dealing on a regional basis Australian coloquialisms.Also you can get for free by a bi-annual publication from Oxford University Press (Australia) that deals with Australian English.They welcome any queries that are not dealt with by books on Australian English such as Fowlers and Modern Australian English , by Nicholas Hudson.

    "Get a dog up ya" (my all time favourite)
    "Goin off like a frog in a sock"
    "where's ya head son"
    any sentence beginning with " 'carn", or ending with "somethin shockin" or "fuck ya"
    any sentence containing the word "knackered"
