Australia Day 2014

Featured on Saturday 18 January, 2014

I'll tell you a story, it's mostly true;
Of gold and sheep and convicts.
Where men could rise, above their station
By being lucky or just brazen.

There are animals too, but quite exotic,
Unlike what you've seen before.
For they entertain, with flute and singing
And banjo, jokes and dancing!

Australia Day is coming up on the 26th of January and we have really enjoyed compiling songs and writing worksheets that celebrate this day. In fact, the romance of the Australian folk songs we've included inspired us to write the (poor) poetry above!
