: Can someone find the origin of the phrase 'the duck's nuts'?? generally a term for something good used in australia.

Not sure who coined it but I presume it's meant to be a humorous echo of the phrase "the dog's bollocks" which also signifies something good in British English (not sure if it's used in Australia).
