Now obsolete, this was Australian slang for residents of Victoria, the southern-most mainland state of Australia. The Rio Grande in this case is the Murray River which is the border between Victoria and New South Wales.
This term was especially popular in the late 80's/early 90's when Victoria was virtually bankrupted by an incompetent state government, in other words we were poor folk from south of the border. Thousands of Victorians migrated to the northern states.
Things improved from the mid 90's and this term has pretty much died out.

An ethnic people that were the original inhabitants of Australia and New Zealand, but have long since lost the land to European settlers (particularly the Anglo-Saxons). The Aboriginals were also the original inhabitants of North America, and their mixture with later-arriving Asians created what we refer to as Native Americans. Today, the Aboriginals are the dominant ethnic group of India and Mexico, and may be found throughout the entire Indian subcontinent and Latin America.
The popular name "Kyle" (or Kylie for girls) is of Aboriginal decent.
Most people dont realize that Aboriginals may be found in other locations besides Australia.

'Mexican Sally' formally known as Salvia divinorum, is a plant found in mexico, which is psychoactive. The plant creates "visions" and other hallucinatory experiences. The drug is extracted from the leaves, and smoked via a water-bong, however smoking (roll-up) or digesting the leaf, will not induce hallucinations, and will only create mild 'highs' (the taste is also potent).
It is legal in many countries whereas it can be grown and used for recreational use, however countries including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Italy, Japan, United States, Russia, Spain, and Sweden have imposed 'some' regulation towards the drug.
A person from the Australian state of Queensland; used by New South Welshman in the derogative.
Explanation: the three eastern states of Australia are Queensland in the north, Victoria in the south, and New South Wales between them. Using North America as a guide, the states are colloquially known as Canada, Mexico and the USA respectively. As such, with canuck being a slang term for Canadian, it too becomes a slang term Queenslander.
NSWer: Those canucks drink Four X because they can't spell beer.
surfers are not stoners. it is incredibly difficult to get high off your ass the night before and paddle out in 50 degree water at 5:30. true surfers cannot be stoners for the sake of being capable to actually surf.
one who surfs. often found in australia, california, hawaii, new zealand, and many other shore-lying regions.
a surfer IS NOT any other person who wears billabong, volcom, roxy etc. and says "dude", "bro", "surfs up", etc. thats just what the media makes us out to be. surfers are also stereotyped as being male, that is very not true. some of the greatest surfers out there are female such as Keala Kennelly, Layne Beachley, Rochelle Ballard, Lisa Anderson, etc.
possibly the most serene, logical, loving, peaceful people out there. and im proud to be one of them.
