Be aware that it is 'normal' for Australians to get with a group of friends and 'shout' each other a drink. It is called 'a round' and when it is your turn you buy the drinks for whoever is in the group.
Some people may invite you to join them in 'a round' and if you accept you are then expected to wait until it's your turn to 'shout a round'you will hear "Your shout mate"
It can end up being an expensive 'round'as some of the group may be drinking spirits etc...so be aware before you say yes.
Most people prefer to stay in a small group so they can keep a tab on who's shout it is.
So don't be conned into joining just for the sake of of wanting to fit in or "shouting when you know it isn't your turn.----especially in a big group when someone may leave before it's their 'shout' and has had a bunch of 'free' drinks-- 'Shout' if you want to but be mindful of a con.
