Reg MacPherson, Grade 4, St Augustine's Parish Primary School
Australia is a marvellous country -
Filled with marvellous animals.
Animals that you can’t find anywhere else in the world.
Like the kangaroo – BOiNG BOiNG!
You can only find the kangaroo in Australia.
The koala sleeping all day
And eating when it’s not asleep.
The platypus loves to swim and hardly ever stops!
The Echidna is prickly - don’t touch!
The emu moves fast and
Likes to run and run and run.
And last of all the true blue Aussie -
Greeting those he meets with “G’day mate”.
