We are Australian!






Thank you all, especially the 10% of the Island's population who came to sing with us and for us. For people who have been here a mere four years, that's a lot of friends we've found.

This is home. We came here determined to make it that, and to fit in to Australia, and the island (which we think is, of course, the best place on earth, but we are biased). It has been remarkably easy. Thank you all for making it that, and for accepting us.

You are ours, and we are yours.

  1. Congrats to you two. Wish y'all were Texans, but I guess being an Islander on Flinders is excellent as well (~_^)

  9. Onya Mate! Now you have a real rugby team to follow - Go the Wallabies!! Congratulations, in all fairness it was a big step coming all the way from SA and deciding to become Australians. Keep up the good work and enjoy the fun and lifestyle of living on exotic Flinders Island.
