    I moved from Melb to Sydney during primary school for a while and still remember the strange looks id get when I used different words! Drinking tap (bubbler) icy pole (ice block) liquid paper (white out) Bathers (cossies) and rollers were some type if shoe really popular at my school for a bit that u had never heard of!

    I still call them hair bobbles...never noticed nobody else did!

    Oh and I am in Melb and I'm sure when I order DH a beer it's a pot or a pint?

    I definitely think you can spot the Qlder by use of words like port or togs. I grew up in nth Qld and have never heard those terms used anywhere else. I had to stop using them as my kids are Victorians and had no idea what I was talking about.

    What about sand shoes? Sneakers? Trainers?

    Sand shoes! But I try to avoid calling them that because no one knows what I'm talking about.
