A to Z Challenge: O

Posted by AJ Blythe at Tuesday, April 17, 2012
O is for Outback and Oz

Oz is another slang term for Australia. In our love of shortening things, Australia goes to Aus... which is than shortened to Oz.

The outback is that large, remote area of Australia away from our urban areas (which are centred around coastal regions).

Hi Anita, first time visitor and great to meet you! I'd love to visit the Outback sometime. The best we have are Outback steakhouses.

Nice to meet you, I have a long-time 'net friend arriving from 'Aus' in the UK next month and we are fixing to meet up on the 4th. I'm so excited.
