My Country' is regarded by many Australians as the universal statement of why they love their land.
Not for them the gentler landscapes of Europe; Australia, in all its contrasts, is the land that they call home, and this feeling is at the heart of Australians' sense of identity. I love a sunburnt country': so begins possibly the best-known and best-loved Australian poem. Set in the Australian landscape, painted by award-winning illustrator and fine artist Andrew McLean. This is a must-have for all young Australians.
