Straya’s Slang Legend

Write it. Perform it. Win it. A competition to be creative and have some fun with Australia’s unique lingo for a chance to win a P&O cruise.

Check out our entries of Aussie's performing an original song, rap or poem using words from the Aussie Slang Dictionary.

If you’re a winner or finalist and you blow us away with your creation, your video may be selected to feature in the Australia Day Live concert and be broadcast on ABC TV and ABC iview on 26 January 2022 (at the discretion of the judging panel). 

G’day cobber.

Think you’re the ant’s pants of the land Down Under lingo like our good mates above? Then you’d better get onto this faster than a rat up a drainpipe.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve lived in Oz your whole life or have just landed on Australia’s sunny shores, you’re invited to get creative with our droll and often off-beat Aussie slang.

It won't hurt: come on cobber, ‘av a go’.

Choosing the winner

Up to 15 creative entries will be shortlisted for our celebrity judging panel to select the winning entry. The overall winner will be announced on the website and Australia Day social media channels at 5:00pm on Friday 21 January 2022 and awarded the P&O cruise. You little ripper!
