Australian Slang For Beautiful (9 Examples)

Australian language can definitely seem weird for people from other English-speaking countries. Sometimes even the simplest words have a completely weird equivalent in the Land Down Under. This is where we come in with the explanation. In this post, let’s take a look at all the different ways Australians say that something is beautiful!

Beaut

Meaning:

  • (Noun) Basically short for beautiful, can be used to say that something is great, or that something looks good.

Example:

  • Man, his car is a real beaut!

Bonzer

Meaning:

  • (Noun) This word is used to describe when something is first-rate, or great, but can also mean that something is beautiful.

Example:

  • That suit you were wearing yesterday was bonzer!

Deadly

Meaning:

  • (Adjective) This word is often used to describe when something is awesome. It can also be used when you want to say that something looks beautiful
