Peter Garrett the lead singer is now a Aussie politician
Song is about giving the Land back to the Indigenous people of Australia
The Europeans declared Australia as "Terra Nullus"..
Some time later, claimed that they Invaded and Conquered
and therefore it was a legitimate Take over.
I'm afraid to say and many White Australian will not Agree But
My Indigenous Mates Deserve Every Right to
This Is Their Land
Trevs back again

I have to be serious here
Australia can be a dangerous place to be
We all know about
Red back spiders,
Funnel web spiders

Below are excerpts from the Drop Bear awareness group on Face Book
I will leave the link at the Bottom
The last posting is My own encounter with the Deadly Drop Bear
Face books Drop Bear Awareness Group's
WE OWE IT TO PEOPLE OF THE WORLD TO MAKE THEM AWARE OF THE DEADLY DROP BEARS.
The primary prey of Drop Bears are unsuspecting tourists, often Welsh or German but usually US American or Japanese. Drop Bears will wait, in the canopy of the Australian Bush until a person walks beneath them and BAM they will drop on your head. It is commonly understood that the Bears favour those with cameras, due to the entrancing reflection of the sun's rays from the glass lenses on a typical Aussie scorcher of a day. There is no truth in the rarely misquoted assertion that they wish to be "at one with the lens". It is a well known fact that the Australian Government would have banned tourism long ago had it not been for the fact that with no tourists, the drop bears would have been forced to feed on Australians
Drop Bears have had some devastating effects on the environment. Central Australia now consists of vast tracts of treeless desert due to the voracious appetites of the local Drop Bear population coupled with the dearth of American tourists and escaped Boat People in the area. This has increased carbon dioxide levels to highly predictable proportions. Scientists have noted that there is now a large hole in the ozone layer above Australia.
The only know repellent for a Drop Bear is vegemite. You will need to rub it on the back of your neck and on your face to stop them attacking. Many people have tried using Aeroguard but this just makes them more active due to the sweet smell of the mist
Below are various contributions made on face book by members of the
DROP BEAR awareness group

Trev back again
Ya learn'n anything here on Dinky Di Aussie??
You maybe asking what has language and flies
got to do with each other???
The one word G'day is probably the most recognized Aussie word around the World
Now a lot of people thing that us Aussies are lazy and that's why we shorten our words like this.
The stiff upper lip of our English fore bears (nothing to do with drop bears...)
Upon meeting some one would say..."Good Day To You" and lift their hat or something.
The problem was ....with so many flies around....if you had your mouth open
with so many words
you were likely to get a few inside!!!!
Many a person,I have seen,nearly choke on them,cause they opened their Gob to often to speak.
So "Good Day To You",became
Aussies are renown for their way to over come problems.
"ow ya goin" is another example of how to greet someone without opening your
gob(mouth) for to long
"ow ya goin'.....How Are You Going
"How are you going"
.....how often is your gob,mouth open?
"ow ya goin"
I put it to You...Your mouth does'nt even open.
Now more about Flies
You are NOT a MATE if you approach any one and while saying
g'day or ow ya goin
You slap them on the back.
"Why is it so"
as a renown Aussie physictist...Julius Sumner-Millar,would ask His students
You will disturb all the flies on his/her back.
They then have to put up with them buzzing around
any where they shoud'nt be....
Now I am telling You,them flies can be so thick on Your back
you cant see the shirt you're wearing.
Just a Big Black Mass of Fly's.
You maybe saying how filthy...I agree....
but better on your back where you know where they are
than in your mouth or where ever.
I live in Western Australia.
Back in the seventies the Govt or Tourist Industry come up with a slogan
"Western Australia the State of Excitement"
You would see it used every where,trying to encourage tourism in WA.
Now You're asking
Flies and Tourism to Western Australia got to do with each other
Some wag come up with a Tee shirt with this slogan...
"Western Australia the State of Excitement....
10 Million Flies Could'nt Be Wrong"
See Ya Later Trend Setters.
Looking After You and
Keeping You Informed
Keep Your GOB closed when yarn'n
