Are you visiting from overseas?
Do you know what this Aussie slang means:
Well South Australia Police (SA Police) has launched a travel friendly guide to help you with some of the local ‘lingo’ (language) and help you with tips to stay safe when travelling around South Australia.
Like nothing else that SA Police has developed before, this campaign has adapted some fun Aussie slang to capture the attention of travellers and get the conversation started on some very serious topics like ridesharing safely, goin’ bush, driving safely on the roads, drugs and alcohol, and who to call in an emergency.
If you work in the South Australian tourism or hospitality industry these resources can be a fun and easy way to start talking to your international visitors about how to enjoy our beautiful surroundings safely.
Check out some of the handy tips below.

This new safety campaign has been developed with support from the Commissioner for Victim’s Rights and Crime Stoppers SA, and in consultation with industry to ensure gaps in the current information available were bridged and made available in a travel friendly size.
