Definition of antipodean:
He had also the primitive view of life, and the morals of a race who, in the clash of East and West, set against Western character and directness, and loyalty to the terms of a bargain, the demoralised cunning of the desert folk; the circuitous tactics of those who believed that no man spoke the truth directly, that it must ever be found beneath devious and misleading words, to be tracked like a panther, as an Antipodean bushman once said, " through the sinuosities of the underbrush."- "The Weavers, Complete", Gilbert Parker Last Updated: March 14, 2009.
As Lord Derby put it in another letter: " I trust you enjoy colonial society and antipodean politics which at least have the charm of greater hopefulness than we can indulge in in this used up old country."- "Fifty-One Years of Victorian Life", Margaret Elizabeth Leigh Child-Villiers, Countess of Jersey.
