Australia The Land Of The Dreamtime


Australia the Land of the Dreamtime the home of the wombat and roo
The home of Koala and emu and the black and the white cockatoo
Where kookaburra welcomes the dawning and magpie often heard in the night
And the mopoke call of the brown boobook can be heard in the calm moonlight.

The descendants of the oldest Indigenous race of people live in Australia their history is very old
By tribal elders around bush camp fires their stories and legends are told
They lived in this Southern Country for this Land they had their own name
Long before the southern mountains they coughed up their rivers of flame.

Australia the Land of the Dreamtime the Land where the old Murray flow
From New South wales into Victoria and into a huge water-way grow
Winding on down through South Australia through the flat, bare and brown countryside
In the depths of the murky waters the rare Murray cod live and hide.

Australia the Land of the Dreamtime renowned for it's varying scenery
The brown and untameable outback that stretches inland from the sea
Of tropical and temperate climates of 20 to 40 plus degrees
The home of the marsupial possums and the Land of the tallest gum trees.
