I use it as punctuation.

On that note, misconception-some-people-mostly-yanks-make alert!: G'day is a greeting, not a goodbye.

Meanwhile, I'm a Kiwi and it's the greeting I use most.

(That said, it is part of Kiwi slang too.)

g'day, cheers, she'll be right, mate and no worries are used daily.

Living in the desert, i can attest to the litres of water but in a pinch i can teach you how to rig up some pastic or a bit of leaf dig a hole, stick it over it balancing precariously on some sticks sleep for 12 hours and wake up to half a mouthful of the shittiest mositure water you've ever had, but at least you won't die.

Also snakes, theres lots of them. trsut me. When you see one, don't listen to the people who say to stand still and don't move cause its more scared of you then you are of it, that is all lies, you see one you stamp your foot as hard as you can (knock out their sonar for a sec) and run like fucking buggery for at least a km watching out for all the other snake you've know doubt tripped on as they are sleeping on a rick in the sun.

Oh and kangaroo is delicious. Try it when you're here!

People that live in the outback should just keep a shovel with them at all times. Good way to kill snakes. What you do is try and sell it to them, and when they're rummaging through their wallet looking for hard earned ducats, punch their lights out.

It truly has many, many uses.

Not to mention comparatively cheap and healthier.

Kangaroo is utterly vile. It's the last animal off our emblem I'll ever eat.

What does "she'll be right" mean and how is it used?

essentially it means that it'll be alright.

usually referring to an inanimate object, i believe. i'll have to defer to the australians on that.

Kangaroo is great it has more protein and less fat than any other red meat. It is also a lot better for the environment than beef as kangaroos create a minimal fraction of the methane.

It fails to mention regional dialects, like adelaidians saying darnce instead of dance. And Vidtorians and QLDers saying Cobber instead of mate. Country folk say bloke as a direct address to a person, "ie "thanks for the water, bloke"

And also, any rediculous misconceptions people have about all australians living in the bush in singlets drinking billy-tea and fighting crocodiles is so fucking wrong. Something like 80% of the population live on the coast in major cities

I use it when people are worried about something, as in a lounge ontop of a car held by one bit of cable.

eg:

Other person: Do you think it will fall?
Me: Nah, she'll be right.

I use no worries at least once a day.

Oh and if you go to the pub for dinner and they are serving crocodile, you have to try some it is delicious, it tastes a bit like chicken.

Never mind talking about the snakes, (they are easy to handle) what about the muntant bugs we have! During summer there is not a night I don't have the Morten can sitting beside me at all times.
