Carry me back to Mullumbimby,
My heart does reside there,
Rural views with sea fresh air,
No finer place on Earth than there.
Rolling green hills with thigh high grass,
Just begging young and old to frolick and play,
We hold hands and race down the hills,
Chasing the blues away.
Smell the fresh tang of the native Latana,
See it's red/orange/yellow blooms,
It's scent fills the summertime air,
Happiness here, no darkness or gloom.
Mt.Warning in the distance,
The first land sighted in Australia,
She welcomes us all on land and sea,
No finer place can there be.
Twin peaks of Chincogan,
A familiar landmark,
My great grandfather lived at their base,
Such a 'feel' to this place.
The old family home built in 1880,
This is our family place of origin,
Green blowing pastures, dotted with cattle,
The birdlife still sings it's delightful din.
Ten minutes away the land meets the sea,
Australia's most easterly point,
The first place in Australia that sees the morning sun,
My favourite stretch of coast - Byron Bay.
Perched on rugged green cliff face,
Bryon Bay Lighthouse, so familiar to me,
This is the land of my forefathers,
No finer view you will see.
Mullumimby rural haven,
Mt. Warning, Byron Bay,
This portion of the New South Wales coastline,
Is simply a heaven to me.
Filled with history,
Countless holidays we enjoyed here,
Here I am home, here my spirit is set free.
I'll tell you this...... No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn.....
(Goddess - Sovereign of the Spirit)
