I recommend this site to everyone who wants a good, comprehensive overview of our land.
Michael Stecker is the author, and he is obviously a man of eclectic tastes - go to his home page when you've finished reading about Australia and find out about his other interests.
He has a great audio version of Waltzing Matilda and I have asked his permission to TRY and use it here - but in the meantime, go to his site and hear it, it's great.
And don't be put off by the funnel web spider - hardly anyone ever dies!!!
