I believe that I have to enlighten you as to the finer points of Orstralian kalcha.
Not all Aussies call relatives "rellies"! This originates from the state of New South Wales where they add "ies" to nearly everything. For example:
Bike riders are "bikies"
Truck drivers are "truckies"
Surfers are "surfies"
Teachers are "chalkies"
Students are "schoolies"
Sailors are "yachties"
Costume is "cosie" and so on. It's sickening.
Unfortunately being the state with highest population they think they are Australia and our unique lifestyle here on the west coast has been corrupted by this influence.
Here in Western Australia bars are also in "hotels", but there are more in taverns, restaurants, sporting clubhouses, night clubs, etc, none of which have to provide accommodation.
As for vegemite - it's yum! Nothing beats a thin spread of it on toast. Note - a thin smear! People in the US I have offered it to spread it on bread or toast about 1/2 inch thick! Aargh! Still that is in a country where most individual serves of food in restaurants are enough for 2 or 3 people and where you have to wring out half a litre (1 pint) of fat/grease from a hash brown before you can eat it
Coopers though isn't a bad drop. I prefer Toohey's Red, or when our dollar can actually buy something imported - Miller. The only time I've actually suffered a Fosters was in the UK.
