Which Aussie? Central doesn't sound like Melbourne, for example.
Like I said, I find Edinburgh accents appealing, not a big fan of Glasgow. Like Connemara, HATE HATE HATE working-class Dublin. There's a wide variety of accents within "Australian", "Scottish", "English," etc. (Fan of RP, giggle at Mancunian, etc.) And I suppose the UKers I know are a bad influence, or I watch too much Monty Python, but I can't help it, I find the stereotypical Welsh accent funny, not sexy.
The Kennedy accent is unique to that family; no one else even in Boston has that accent.

There have been numerous documentaries about this as the country is so large you'd expect more variety, but there seems to be standard, Melbourne, country and then ethnic...second generation migrants who just have a hint of something else.

Most of the Southern Hemisphere has a similar accent - NZ, SA, the pacific islands. We spell like the Brits and use American vocabulary. We just sound wierd.
