South West of Western Australia Exploring

The love of field and coppice

of green and shaded lanes

of ordered woods and gardens

is running in your veins,

Strong love of grey-blue distance

Brown streams and soft dim skies

I know but cannot share it,

My love is otherwise.

The above is an extract from the famous Australian poem by Dorothea McKellar, ‘My Country’. You may remember it more if I said ” I love a sunburnt country, a land of sweeping plains”. That is actually part of the second verse of the poem!

I remember learning that poem for year five assembly many many moons ago and I am still mesmerised by the beautiful play of the words evoking all the senses and taking us on a journey around our amazing country.

The vastness of Australia would make it difficult to reach and explore all these little pockets of surprises in a lifetime, though one could try I suppose! Today I want to take you to one of these pockets and that is the Western Australian South West by sharing a short video made available by the Western Australian Tourism office.
