I'd add the nasal whine from north Melbourne (Kath & Kim).
Beer glass sizes are called lots of different names, and only Queenslanders call suitcases "ports" (portmanteaus).
Otherwise we are fairly uniform in speech. There are variations in ethnic origins at different places, but we tend to talk the same and have similar values.

Though if you do come down here be careful ordering beer.

Biggest variance in language is the names for the various glass sizes they serve beer in, or even the mass produced swill you order.

So, is that flavored carbonated bottle of stuff cola , pop, soda, coke (generic for any brand or flavor)?

And those lace up rubber sole shoes sneaks, trainers, keds, tennas, sneakers, gym shoes or tennis shoes?

Beyond Appalachia does anyone call a darning needle (dragon fly) a "snake doctor" or know want "my ownest one" means?

And who calls a dance "Fais do-do" or a pig roast "Cochon de Lait."

Just mix em all up, upset everyones' sense of order and just get over themselves. [Sighs] yes I know it is very dangerous to make one confront his delusions.
