BUSH POETRY: TRAVEL 'ROUND AUSTRALIA
We're indebted to Colin Young, from the Caravan Council, for this little gem.

 

Come travel ‘round Australia, and see its wondrous sights

From the outback to the cities, from the daytime to the nights

Where the splendour of our country, will swell your heart with pride

And fill your eyes with beauty, that will keep you satisfied.

Whatever takes your fancy, from van to motorhome

Enjoy the spoils of freedom, wherever you may roam

A basic camper-trailer, or fancy caravan

The memories last a lifetime, so travel while you can.

The leisure of this way of life, true nomads on the road

Without a care for anything, without a fixed abode

It’s great for relaxation, to come and go at will 

The freedom and the friendships, your dreams you will fulfil.

From the Gulf of Carpentaria, to the Great Australian Bight

From Carnarvon ‘cross to Byron, the country’s one delight

From the Nullarbor to Tassie, to the splendid Darling Downs

From the glamour of big cities, to the quiet country towns.

So take a good vacation, with no worry and no care

To visit all the places, in I’ve Been Everywhere,

See the dawn on Kosciusko, and the sun set on the Rock

No boss and no commitment, no phone or wake-up clock. 

From the desert panorama, and the life in Lightning Ridge

To the opera house in Sydney, the harbour and the bridge

No special place to be, it’s a carefree way of life

You’ve worked and you deserve it, no worries and no strife.

Come travel ‘round Australia, and see its wondrous sights

From the outback to the cities, from the daytime to the nights

Where the splendour of our country, will swell your heart with pride

And fill your eyes with beauty, that will keep you satisfied.
