I enjoyed learning more about Australian slang. Some of it I'd heard before, but other words were new to me! I wish you'd expanded the list! Your poem at the beginning was cute! :)

I do think that the following passage does not fit with the theme of the rest of the piece, so would probably have left it out: "The land down under has its problems just like any other country of that I am sure. Given its very colorful history of how it was first used as a penal colony, does not take away from the grandeur and beauty of Australia today."

Blessings on your writing!
I had fun reading and learning more about Aussie slang.
