“Sydneysider” is the term used to describe one born in Sydney, capital of the Australian state of New South Wales, or one who regards Sydney his home.

Someone who was born in New South Wales or regards New South Wales his home is a New South Welshman, although this term is not in common use.

Someone who was born or lives in Melbourne is a Melburnian (also Melbournian) and those born or who live in Victoria, of which Melbourne is the state capital, are Victorians.

New South Welshmen sometimes refer to Victorians as “Mexicans” since they live south of the border.

    By the way, we are all Mexicans to Queenslanders.
