    Music resources theme - Bush and beach - Rivers and beaches thumbnail image
    Public

    Two iconic symbols of Australia, the bush and the beach, are well represented in Australian music. References to birds and birdsongs, rivers, scorching heat, the bush cry ‘coo-ee’, and pristine beaches have been used and reused in all genres of music. Four out of five Australians live within 50 kilometres of the coast. Australia is also the driest inhabited continent on earth, making our rivers the lifeblood of the nation. It's no wonder, then, that there is so much music related to Australia's rivers and beaches - songs about Maroubra, Manly, the Murrumbidgee, the Murray, and more.
