Golden Wattle, Silver Fern
This is where the Emus and Kiwis mob together around the Boree Log.
Where we spin yarns of the Land Down Under and the Land of The Long White Cloud.
Of the legend and spirit of the ANZAC.
Of All Blacks and Wallabies.
Of Silver Ferns and Diamonds
The Aussie XI and the Kiwi XI.
And the friendly rivalry between them.
To talk about current affairs in Au and NZ.
It is also for friends of the Aussies and Kiwis to join in and learn what makes them both tick. Their lands. Their stories,and poetry, their art, and songs. Their histories both Dream-time and the new dreaming.
Aotearoa. -Maori -Land of the long white cloud.
