There is a whole body of Australian folks songs many of which Australians once knew (Botay Bay and Click Go the Shears, for example). For very apparent purposes, they have been ignored in an attempt by a certain class of Australian residents to erase them from our memory. Below are some of the most popular.
Botany Bay – Sung by Mirusia Louwerse – singer on the Home Page
Botany Bay – second version as sea shanty, more common rendition
Modern songs in the same spirit
True Blue – celebrating the life of Steve Irwin
