(LISTEN to song audio sample in Preview at the top of this page)
This beautiful country is known as a continent.
Floating Down Under, so wild and so free;
In Southern, Indian and Pacific Oceans,
Arafura, Coral, Timor, and the Tasman Seas.
We’ve Queensland and N.S.W., and the Northern Territory,
There’s South Australia and Victoria,
Western Australia, The (Australian) Capital Territory,
While right down the bottom, you will find Tasmania.
YEP! We’ve got it all right here in Australia,
North, south and west and east of our land;
Significant places, sites and environments,
Work of Mother Nature or built with human hands.
