There's really no question here. Go with a "banana hammock" and don't look back. Literally, it won't be pretty.

Hi! All I can say is definately not. I have lived in Australia all my life, and everyone wears board shorts. The only people that were them are old men with beer guts and pro swimmers.

Good luck and have a great time!

I would say 3 out of 10 guys

Tony Abbott (last prime minister wears them at Manly beach.

Many people wear speedos. Anyone who swims long distance or races.

Many people also wear boardies (board shorts).

I would say wear board shorts to beaches and keep your speedos for swimming pools.
