THE WHITE HOUSE BY THE NEPEAN RIVER
THE IRISH ARE NOT CELTS
Australia has a rich heritage and this is reflected in its folklore, its oral and social history as well as its music and song, both traditional and contemporary. Simply Australia was started with this in mind.
Simply Australia has been online now since October 2001. We have been through a number of improvements in design and our readership has steadily grown.
In March 2006 we had a major shift in presentation, changing from a static magazine style site to what you see here. We wanted to make the site more interractive, giving our readers the opportunity to comment on individual items on the site and to contribute, through the comments, their own thoughts and ideas on each subject.
February 2009 saw another change - the removal of the old Vault which housed all our archived issues (numbers 1-11). The articles, songs, poems and reviews are progressively being sorted into themes and being added to the new menu above.We expect this will be a great bonus for the many educational groups that visit the site.
We hope the new look is easy to navigate. We think it is! Everything on the site can be accessed from the above menu and the column on the right shows the latest additions.
The SEARCH engine is at the bottom of each page. Newly added works may take a short while to be included in the engine.
Finally, as we said in our very first issue - we are very excited at the potential of this "new" online venture. We hope you will drop by frequently and we would appreciate your comments and suggestions. It would be great if you could tell your friends about Simply Australia too.

The subtle, unique fragrance of the wattle blossom definitely invigorates the soul.
