Australia Song


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am planning the topic 'Australia' to do with my Reception class in the Summer term. As part of this, we will be doing an assembly for parents and I would love to find a good children's song either about, or from, Australia. I've been trawling the internet for ages but can't seem to find any!

 

If anyone has any good suggestions i'd love to hear from you!

 

Thanks :o

Just two fairly obvious ones....

 

Waltzing Matilda and Kookubara Sits in the Old Gum Tree - not sure about my spelling there! xD:o

 

These are great - thanks! They are obvious but I hadn't thought of them! Just found some lovely clips of children singing Kookubara - if i'm feeling brave we may even try it as a round...

is a legend in Australia and has published some great songs for children of all ages about Australia.

 

 

I agree that Don Spencer has some wonderful works, but I wouldn't recommend this particular song which uses 'Eyre's Rock' and 'Didgeridoo' which might be better replaced by 'Uluru' and 'Ydaki' (spelling?).
