In Australia if something is said to be "Duck's Guts" then it is considered to be interesting :)
Maybe QI.com should be renamed DG.com

If the phrase still exists in Australian English, it is probably only used by older men from distinctly rural areas. It's certainly not a common expression - I've never heard it before. The most common phrase of that kind would probably be "the bee's knees" but even that is fairly rare these days.
