I am an ignorant American looking to brush up on my Aussie speak. I am happy to exchange some of my own expressions that you may not find in textbooks.
I was inspired to start this thread with some of my favorite Piros quotes.
"Sticks like **** to a blanket"
"Snug as a thumb in a bum"
I have been chasing wind for 2 decades so here some that I know-
"The wind today is up and down like a whore's panties" or its just "whore's panties" for short
"Check out Kenny Shlogginz out there mowin the lawn"
I will think of more as soon as I post this.
Please add your best ones!
Here's a couple:-

You can add in cu#t or cu#ts to bring more Aussie flavour to the saying.
"I'm as dry as a dead dingos donger" (thirsty)
"Fair suck of the sav" (fair go)
" Carrying on like a frog in a sock" (all over the place )
"Happy as a mosquito at a nudist camp" (very happy)
Some old ones
Dry as a nuns nasty ...thirsty
Sweating like a priest in court ... hot
Going for a 3 bags full... personal pleasure
Feel like a bag of fruit... root or sex
Stiffer than a honeymooner's d1ck. = Fairly high modulus.
Couple of oldies:
Fair suck of the sauce bottle - steady on mate
Flat out like a lizard drinkn - busy as f*#k
Is a frog's ass watertight? (yes)
I don't like the cut of his gybe
Good from afar but far from good
^^^ cut of his jib (sailing term)
your last one would mean she possibly has a head like a burnt thong (not underwear lol) or a head like a dropped pie
Google Cockney rhyming slang for more on Seppo. I'm a "fecking yank" as y'all would say and I love where that came from.
A few roos short in the top paddock.
I've been told its local to where I live.....
Which is weird coz I've heard it in every state....
Ask..."What do you know?"
Answer...."Nothing" or "Not Much"
