Ankle Biters = Children. More specifically, small children or toddlers (aka curtain climbers)
Bangers = sausage links (they pop on the barbie)
Dags = nerds, I guess... not really geeks, but somehow socially inept or nieve
Cheerio = goodbye or 'fare-thee-well' (that's the only one I know)
Chocka (not chockie, which is chocolate) Pass.
Crash Hot... so Hot she'd make you crash your car?... Often used as "not too crash hot" (not keen on the idea or just not very good).
Laughing Gear is your mouth or lips... "Wrap your laughin gear around that beauty"
Cuppa can be tea or coffee
Drop your gear = Take your clothes off
Get off the grass = "What have you been smoking to think THAT way?" or "You're delusional".
Dodgy = Shady, Not Trustworthy
Cuz = 'Because'?, 'Cousin'? (I guess I'm not sure about that one)
Cardie = Cardigan
