I am an ignorant American looking to brush up on my Aussie speak. I am happy to exchange some of my own expressions that you may not find in textbooks.
I was inspired to start this thread with some of my favorite Piros quotes.
"Sticks like **** to a blanket"
"Snug as a thumb in a bum"
I have been chasing wind for 2 decades so here some that I know-
"The wind today is up and down like a whore's panties" or its just "whore's panties" for short
"Check out Kenny Shlogginz out there mowin the lawn"
I will think of more as soon as I post this.
Please add your best ones!
Here's a couple:-

You can add in cu#t or cu#ts to bring more Aussie flavour to the saying.
"I'm as dry as a dead dingos donger" (thirsty)
"Fair suck of the sav" (fair go)
" Carrying on like a frog in a sock" (all over the place )
"Happy as a mosquito at a nudist camp" (very happy)
Some old ones
Dry as a nuns nasty ...thirsty
Sweating like a priest in court ... hot
Going for a 3 bags full... personal pleasure
Feel like a bag of fruit... root or sex
Stiffer than a honeymooner's d1ck. = Fairly high modulus.
Couple of oldies:
Fair suck of the sauce bottle - steady on mate
Flat out like a lizard drinkn - busy as f*#k
Is a frog's ass watertight? (yes)
I don't like the cut of his gybe
Good from afar but far from good
^^^ cut of his jib (sailing term)
your last one would mean she possibly has a head like a burnt thong (not underwear lol) or a head like a dropped pie
Google Cockney rhyming slang for more on Seppo. I'm a "fecking yank" as y'all would say and I love where that came from.
A few roos short in the top paddock.
I've been told its local to where I live.....
Which is weird coz I've heard it in every state....
Ask..."What do you know?"
Answer...."Nothing" or "Not Much"
Reply... "Can't get in trouble that way"
Don't give me the raw prawn or I'll show you what to do with the rough end of a pineapple.
