Australian (informal; colloquialism)- A light-hearted phrase used to express encouragement and rowdy approval towards another, often acknowledgement of a difficult accomplishment. Considered a "trademark" of the Australian jargon (the latter aptly known as "Strine", after the supposed initial pronounciation of Australian language)
