Australian National Anthems

When the First Fleet arrived from England, they bought with them God Save the Queen (or King) as the National Anthem. As Australia gained its own identity, the need to have it’s own National Anthem became more of an issue. Through the years many competitions were held to find a replacement Anthem that truly spoke for Australia and its uniqueness. Among the suggested options were Australian Anthem, Australian Hymn, Song of Australia, Waltzing Matilda and Advance Australia Fair.
