The book also includes a detailed look at Australia's ufficial national anthem, 'Waltzing Matilda', and the classic ballad, 'The Man from Swy River'. It's All About Australia, Mate is a good read for anyone interested in our nearest neighbour and for anyone about to visit Australia. Unlike any other book on the market, this is the complete guide to the Australian way of life and a good laugh to go with it.
