And the bush has friends to meet him, and their kindly voices greet him, In the murmur of the breezes and the river on its bars,
And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended, And at night the wonderous glory of the everlasting stars.
Banjo Paterson (1889)

There are cheap cars for sale at many dealerships now, but you may have to put up with your BMW or Audi looking a little like swiss cheese!
