page 180 Macquarie Dictionary 3rd Edition

 

Usage note:

 

It is sometimes argued that between should only be used with two things or people (between the two of us) and that otherwise among should be used (among the three of us), but few people follow this rule strictly, and it is mor idiomatic to say 'between us all we'll find a solution' than 'among us all'...
