The Australian Bush

- from the Australian Government's Cultural Portal

Henry Lawson 

An article from the Australian Government with some brothersome errors. The article mentions that:

I think this should be A Song of the Republic. (1887). Song of Australia was published in 1908 or 1910.

The Man from Snowy River
