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 back in October 2001 with this in mind.

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.

Good reading, happy listening and enjoy, from the team at Simply Australia
