Golden Wattle, Silver Fern

Information

Golden Wattle, Silver Fern

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.

There is no common Aboriginal word for Australia due to the many language groups before the arrival of the European.

The Golden Wattle is floral emblem of Australia
the Emu is Australia's symbolic bird
The Silver Fern is the floral emblem of New Zealand.
The Kiwi is of New Zealand's symbolic bird.

New Zealand's National anthem in both Maori and English

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=w_RoAcOiHB8

Australia's National Anthem the anthem that was foisted upon us.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=B57QEEl97po

This is the alternate anthem that we did not get to vote on in a referendum.

Called God Bless Australia.

Sharing myths is so comforting!

Well Cunucks, Aussies and Kiwis belong to the Commonwealth of Nations formed from the former British Empire. Didn't we sport!

As a Canadian - that's prolly as far on Earth as you can be from Australia - I'm here to make sure you guys are not just a myth and as a fellow commonwealth-er to expand my knowledge of colloquial English =)

No worries, mate.  She'll be right.  Now, I have expended all the 'trailian I know.  Now I can get on to something besides bad imitations.  :)
