How Is Siri Coping With Your Australian Accent?

By now, the first early buyers should have their iPhone 4S and have had a chance to play around with Siri, the impressive-sounding voice command system which (for now) is only on the 4S. Siri is said to be ready for Australian accents and vocabulary right out of the box, but how well is it actually working? We want to hear your stories.

My own experience with voice recognition has suggested that Australian accents often pose a major challenge, so I’d like to know how well Siri is coping with this in practice, and how well it deals with the queries you’ve thrown at it and general dictation tasks. Share your experience in the comments.
