The English Austrailian voice is the more chilled cousin to the enticing British accent. Whereas we see the English speaker in trendy city clothes, we picture the Australian holding a surfboard, or at least in a casual outfit. And this is what the accent conveys as well. If your piece has a place for a friendly, well known, warm voice, with just a bit of exoticness tossed in, the English-Australia voice over may be just what you want.
Like North American English, Australian English derived from British English. In the 1700's, Britain colonized Australia, and the language began to take on its style. Australia was intended to be a penal colony and many of the people sent there were from larger cities, like London where they spoke with a Cockney accent. Southern British is also a basis for the Australian accent. These accents began to diverge into the Australian accent we hear today.
The Australian population is around 26 million with the majority of this population on the Eastern seaboard. Not much of the interior of the large country is populated. The ACT (Australian Capital Territory) has the highest population density of any area in Australia. Victoria and New South Wales also have high populations, while the Northern Territory has the lowest population density. Australia is the sixth largest country in the world.
Unlike other countries, like England or the United States, Australia does not have different accents for its different regions. You may hear different dialects based more on class than region. Because Australia is a mobile country and many people move around from place to place, the Australian accent is quite general throughout the country.
Autralians are very adept at changing their voice depending on who they are talking with. For instance, thier accents may shift to heavier on the British side if they are talkign with British people. The Australian accent is well known for its softer vowels, the lack of a strong 'r' sound, and the intonation that often makes statements sound like questions, plus makes the language sound so lovely.
With an Australian accent, you will hear 'oo' sounds as 'ew' sounds. For instance, 'pool' and 'cool' become 'pewl' and 'cewl'. Another pronunciation distinction is either leaving off the last letter of a word or changing it. An example is 'trying' is 'tryin' and 'after' is 'aftah'.
