Afternoon, as in "See you Saturday arvo." 
It is often used in the phrase 'this arvo', 
which is sometimes shortened to 'sarvo' - 
"meet you after the game, sarvo." 
Arvo is an example of a special feature of Australian English, 
the habit of adding -o to an abbreviated word. 
Other such words are 'bizzo' (business) and 'journo' (journalist).
