More about Australia’s Ozzie accent
The Australian accent is very well known thanks to popular soaps like Neighbours and big names like Kylie Minogue and Mel Gibson.
The Aussie dialect has some amazing and unique words.
For example, a good night might start off with a ‘barbie’, before heading to the ‘boozer’ to talk about beating the ‘pommies’ until your ‘rotten’. Later, get in your ‘matilda’, sleep and then get up for some ‘ace brekkie’!
It’s a colourful dialect and is a lot of fun to imitate, especially when you’re drinking ‘flat out like a lizard’!
The Australian accent is a popular choice for many global brands. Especially the softer general accent. Listeners will often confuse an Australian voice with the American or Transatlantic accent. And that’s the point.
A voice over with a general Australian accent sounds ‘worldly’ but also down-to-earth and fun.
This is why it’s favoured by travel, airline and beer brands.
