I'm a Queenslamder living in WA - always get told we say things weird!
Cheerios - cocktail frankfurts
nikko - permanent marker
whipper snipper - 'weed whacker'
refredex - street directory
fly screen - fly wire
Devon - polony
Pop up sprinklers - retic
popper - 'prima' or juice box
(first word is what I would say as a QLDer, 2nd word is what my WA mates or those from other states say)
I also call the thing you hold a beer in (stubby holder) a 'beer cozy.' It's keeping your hand (or the beer) cozy!
I was born in the 70,s Nsw:
Thongs (are footwear)

A sloppy joe was a like a fleecy sweat shirt or like a track suit top!
