Hi and welcome. If you are from OS welcome to OZ..on this page I would like to
give you some idea of what life is like in the most beautiful, friendly country
in the world...hehehe..naturally a totally unbiased opinion..just ask me.
Advance Australia Fair
This is Australia's official national anthem however most Aussies would not know all the
words off by heart, it is just not in our nature to take nationalism and beat other people
over the head with it, Unlike say our American cousins Aussie's know this is a great place
and we don't feel the need to force the fact onto everybody else..no chest thumping here..hehehe.
Aussies are generally a fairly esay going lot and if you get to big for your boots you are very
smartly bruoght back down to earth.
This is Australia's unofficial national anthem and just to prove how larconically obtuse we are most
Aussies WOULD be able to sing this song word for word. If you ever hear this being sung with great gusto
overseas anywhere you can bet that somewhere in the mob is an Aussie. There is something in the Aussie
character that says if there is an official something there must be an unofficial something and that is the
one to go with. This outlook was always viewed with great distain by the British when like America, Austraia
was an infant colony.
So as I said in the opening header,if you have just floated in on the breeze and you are looking for a place to put your feet up for a while, that's okay.
Make yourself a cuppa, kick back and see if there is anything that may be of interest, you may come to love this beautiful land as we do. Don't forget now, please sign the guestbook.
North Queensland Rain Forest
Ullaru otherwise known as The Rock
The Sound you can hear is the natural sound of the Australian bush
overlayed by hum of the Aboriginal didgeredoo, which is simply the
hollowed out branch of a tree and blown similar to blowing a trumpet.
The Blue Mountains
The beaut Aussie bush not only has some of the most spectacular scenery unlike
anywhere else in the world but also the most unique wild life to be seen anywhere on
this planet, as the words of our national athem proudly proclaim " beauty rich and rare".
The oceans around this beautiful land also contain some of the worlds most fabulous
coral reefs one of which,The Great Barrier Reef situated just a short boat ride from the
beach on the north eastern state of Queensland has been granted world heritage status and
thus is not only loved by Aussie tourists but is of particlar interest to the many visitors
to this great land as well.
As Australia is recognised as one of the driest continents on earth its flora and fauna have
evolved to take maximum advantage of their habitat. The centre of the counrty has one of the
harshest climates to be found anywhere on the planet. It is here that you will find The Rock,
known as Ullaru. This is Dingo country, also where you may find such reptiles as the amazing Freeneck Lizard.
This little creature looks like a left over cast member from the movie Jurassic Park, Speilberg would be pleased.
This little Aussie looks ferocious but in fact is not very large. When startled or threatened by predators the
frill around its neck is extended, it usually remains along the sides of its body when it s relaxed, it stands
on its rear legs, and makes a fearsome hissing sound. If all this show is not enough to discourage predators then
uses those rear legs to scurry of to safety, leaving its tormenter wondering what the hell was that.
The Kookaburra also lives in these more temperate climes. With its trade mark call that sounds like laughter it appears to be
agreeing that the Aussie bush is really an amazing place. With all these most unique animals it really is worth a visit if you
ever get the opportunity. With such a zany cast who says the creator does not have a sense of humour.
