Shot on the coldest April night Sydney has seen in 25years

"Australia" is a song by Australian rock band Gyroscope, from the album Breed Obsession. It was released as the third single from their highly successful album, which peaked at number one on the Australian Albums Chart. The song was released to radio in May 2008, and was released as a CD single and digital download on 14 June 2008, along with two acoustic pieces. One of those being a live acoustic version of "Australia", the other a live acoustic cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game".

The song lyrically covers a range of issues surrounding the band's home country, Australia. It notably "pays tribute to indigenous people, first settlers, Diggers and recent reconciliation efforts." "Australia" is said to have risen Gyroscope's "songwriting to new heights", it's a track that confirms the Australian rock band "are equally capable of creating softer numbers as well as the harder hitting ones".

Lead vocalist and songwriter Daniel Sanders speaking about the story behind the song, said "It was essentially written about myself leaving England as a tot and coming to Australia, and then growing up here, appreciating and embracing our culture and heritage and falling in love with it all. I wanted to express it for my own sake... So I could rejoice in what I love about this country".
