anonymous We are Australian January 16, 2005 1:28 AM

In the current climate of challenges it is perhaps opportune to remember who we are and where we come from. As there has been little action in this group for ages, I do trust that this link will stir up something here Click on http://users.bigpond.net.au/aussieconnection/chorus.htm then hit "listen" to hear the stirring rendition of this wonderful Australian anthem.

Personally I think that song is even better than our national anthem. Sorry if this offends anyone! I just think it is a better reflection of Australian culture. But there is probably a good reason I don't know about, that means it can't be our anthem. Have a nice day everyone, and isn't it great to be Australian? ~Princess~  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Yes I agree with you .... while I no longer live in Australia, I still love this song and have, like you, always considered it a far better representation of Australia and our Australian-ness than Advance Australia Fair. The fact that Qantas use it in their international advertising says alot... so at least it gets a lot of exposure.

Perhaps it wasn't around at the time. I think it is better too.  [ send green star]
