comment Is there any gairaigo based on Australian English?
Jim Breen responded to me with the following: "Apart from the usual crop of animal, etc. names, I am unaware of any particularly Australian words that have become 外来語." I hope that fully answers your question, Andrew.

I am sure people treat them as native English words nowadays, just like tsunami entered English from Japanese. I am in no way authoritative in the field, so I wanted to at least be a bit careful in my claims. I guess any deeper research into the topic would be to identify words that can be called true Australian English and see how these are used in Japanese. But maybe Jim Breen (of Monash/JDICT) already has done some research into this area. Time to send him an email and see what he has to say.
