Australia, Where I Come From

Finalist in the 'Top Secret 2016' competition

Captain Cook discovered the tip
He claimed our great land
The Convicts came upon eleven ships
They stumbled across the sand

At Ballarat gold was struck
There was a great blockade
The miners thought they had some luck
It's History, the Eureka Stockade

Never was there such an outlaw
Ned Kelly was his name
Many a time he broke the law
Good and bad was his fame

This is how our country came to be
We forged it great and strong
So young, so beautiful, so free
Australia is where I belong.
