Down Under Slideshow - Part 1

Below is a two part slideshow of photographs from our trip set to music inspired by trip events. Home Among the Gum Tree was a song we sang and danced to at our dinner at the Wetherby Station Cattle Ranch. We sang and learned the meaning to the words of Waltzing Matilda on one of our bus rides. When we reached New Zealand Linda sang the unofficial anthem and love song, Pokarrekare Ana. When searching for an appropriate song for the grandeur of the South Island, I stumble upon the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra's recording of New Zealand Suite - Milford Sound. The final song, Isa Lei, was sung for us by the villagers in Fiji.

Part 1 contains pictures of Cairns and Sydney in Australia.
