I personally cannot stand the Australian accent and 95% of the Australians that moved to London, the ones in Los Angeles seem alright. Probably one of the worse accents along with those white South Africans.

Weird I'm saying this, but finally an American who does NOT like our accent

Some of Australia's (and England's) words sound bizarre to me, rather than pleasant or interesting.
If you want, I'll try to find and post Aussie words that don't sound nice imho.

I do like "...Chistmas in Australier on a scorching summer's day..." though; quite funny, always makes me grin.

'cept the reality is not so funny. A scorching Chrissie is awful. Christmas is meant to be cold. And this business with having a cold seafood lunch for Christmas is bizarre. I roast a turkey despite practically melting in my kitchen. That's what cold beer is for

I meant the way the words sound, (Australier ) not the actual concept.

My most favourite Christmas was 85 F/30 C in Daytona Beach.
I would probably enjoy "swimming in my clothes" on Christmas; we don't even get weather like that most summers!

I remember Christmas Eve's that were brutally-cold;
one dipping overnight to at least -30 C even though the ground was completely bare of snow or ice.

Ever thought of building an outdoor "stone-oven," so your oven doesn't make your house hot?
Or you could make your turkey the way some US Southerners do; deep-fried for 45 minutes in an outdoor fryer.
Deep-fried turkey is catching on in other parts of North America too lately.

No thanks! I'll stick to the fresh fish and sand crabs and moreton bay bugs

I'm British but I live in Los Angeles but I hear you though. American's are obsessed with our accents and they can't tell the difference either!... well 90% of them can't.

How someone could not tell the difference is beyond me. They are poles apart.

I recently learned that one difference is British people dipthong the long-O as "eh-oe" while Australians typically say "ah-oe".

Ex:
British: November sounds like "Neh-oe-vem-bah"
Aussie: November sounds like "Nah-oe-vem-bah"
