A timeless, ancient country

??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????
The land out beyond, of river or ridge
Somewhere the outback starts
From beyond the black stump to the back o’Bourke
That’s what I was taught, just a little bit out of reach

A land real and legendary
Yet the sights, the sounds, the history and the myths
Are deeply embedded in the Nations heart
We may cling to the coast, we maybe
An essentially urban, beach going culture
But somewhere in our hearts, there is a special place this country

The landscape that stretches endlessly
Beyond the reach of cities, the outback is big
Larger than life, and so is everything out there
Our big skies are renowned all over the world
And the reason is our land is the lowest
Flattest and driest continent in the world
