Fair Dinkum is alive and kicking

I've been in Australia for about 12 years now and I hear Fair Dinkum said fairly frequently. I'd say that its use increases with age and distance from a major metropolitan centre so somebody under 40 who lives in Sydney or Melbourne might never hear it.

But having said that, Scotty "doesn't know" Morrison has over-used it so much that it might make regular users of the phrase cringe a little and reduce their usage.
