It comes around every year, that day that polarises our nation between the pride of being Australian and the inherited guilt of how we came to be here.

The expression ‘true blue’ has been adopted to mean ‘something very Australian’ and if you ask most people what it means to them you will get very different answers.

This lone prospector with best friend and mining pick, symbols of mate-ship and hard work, seem to me as ‘true blue’ as you can get.
