Australia grew from here.

Overwhelming hardships and depredation but Australia grew to what it is today.
The beginning, the highs and the lows, wars and depression but Australia always bounced back and we will again after this latest set back.

Thanks for sharing mate. Great song with a lot of meaning. Those that came over here as convicts had it hard. But in the end it was the best thing to ever happen to them in the long run. After they finished their time some of them ended up with land of their own to work and raise a family. My great great Grandfather came over here as a convict on the second fleet and after doing 7 years got married and started a family on his own land that was granted to him. These are the type of people we should be thanking, for the Australia we have now.
