(This poem was written by Joy Roebig)

I love this land Australia
The place where I was born,
This land of brilliant sunsets
And beauty in its dawn,
It weaves a kind of magic,
So ancient, yet so new,
It seems to make you part of it
And becomes a part of you,
The mystery of its mountains,
The gold of glistening sand,
Their splendour is unequalled
Throughout this sunburned land,
So stand up tall Australians,
Stand up so tall inside,
And say, "I am Australian",
And wear the name with pride.
