Let us advance Australia's anthem

During the 2004 Olympics it was obvious that "Advance Australia Fair" had seen off the challenge mounted by "Waltzing Matilda" to be considered as our national anthem. Now that "Advance Australia Fair" is widely accepted as the official national anthem - as distinct from a government decree that it will be our anthem - it is worth examining its words. First sung in Sydney in 1878, the anthem has words many of which may have been suitable in their time but today seem heavily dated - Br Regis Hickey
