Australia A Huge Country - Poem by Francis Duggan

The home of the wattle, the eucalypt and the pittosporum tree
In the great southern Country there is so much to see
A Land of varying scenery from the brown outback to the wooded hills of the south
That it is one of the World's amazing Countries there can be little doubt
Home to marsupials and megapodes and monoterene
Such marvelous wildlife in Australia to be seen
Magpies, kookaburra, many species of parrots and currawong
And honeyeaters and lyrebirds in this Southern Country belong
The home to the emu, cassowary and many species of black and of white cockatoo
And of rosellas and lories, wombat, koala and roo
And of an old race of people the children of the Dreamtime
They have been the inspiration of story and rhyme
With some of the most amazing wildlife to human kind known
Australia a huge Country with a charm of it's own.
