Mate. A four-letter word.

A four-letter word that rivals any other four-letter word for linguistic dexterity. In The Meaning Of Mate, we have documented just 18 of its iconic uses – 18 as it was in 1818 that the first official celebrations took place of what became known as Australia Day.

Each short clip is a reminder for those of us who know, and a how-to for those yet to find out. Whether by birth or just by heart, everyone has a chance to deliver an iconic "Mate!" to those they love and those they loathe. Join us in raising a toast to the country, and a toast to a word we all know and love.
