Where can I find a good source (book or web page) of equivalences between Australian English and American English? I am looking for ordinary words, clothing-related words, food-related words, etc.

Is the Australian National Dictionary any use?
There used to be quite a funny book of Australian English which was published around the sixties or seventies, but I can't seem to find it on the internet.
I think the question should really be what are the Equivalences between Australian English and British English?
Because Australian English is derived from British English and has far more in common with it than it does with US English. In fact, apart from colloquialisms and a few differences in common phrases Australian and British English are very close indeed.
