Luckily though the rain cleared and the clouds dissipated for two hours allowing us to watch the sun set over Uluru whilst sipping cool beers out of our eskie.

frindley commented on the word eskie
Oh yes, the ubiquitous Aussie cooler box. Although I believe the correct spelling is Esky. The real thing was invented by Malley's and is now made by Nylex, but, as with the bandaid, the name has been adopted for coolers generally.There is a wiki page and Questacon includes it in a discussion of those other great Australian inventions: wine casks, stay-sharp knives, vegemite and lamingtons.
