I love a sunburnt country

I love a sunburnt country,

A land of sweeping plains,

Of ragged mountain ranges,

Of drought and flooding rains,

I love her far horizons,

I love her jewel sea,

Her beauty and her terror -

The wide brown land for me.

Dorothea MacKellar

We went for a trip to Cowra for the weekend. So I had a go at landscapes for a change ,as there was so much beautiful countryside along the way

    Brilliant! When I was younger I worked as a jillaroo and had to fix windmills from time to time. This just brought back so many memories - thank you!!!!

    We sang this last night with our "singaustralia" choir and the thought occurred to me that you could illustrate each line with a photo, in a set, or Gallery!

    Psycho Oz!
    by Kerry Cue

    Australians all let us freak out,
    For we are spooked you see;
    We've a scary land, we don't understand;
    Our home is so creepy.
    Our land's red heart is sort of weird
    There's freaking nothing there!
    We cling to the coast, a British outpost;
    Freak out Australia, yeah!

    I love a psycho country
    A land of badass plains
    Of whacko mountain ranges
    Sick droughts and random rains
    I lover her weird horizons
    I lover her aggro sea
    Her tarty mad bitch manner
    The looney land for me!
