Dorothea Mackellar's My Country: a centenary celebration, 1908 - 2008

by: photographed by Peter Luck
published by: Pier 9

'I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.'

Dorothea Mackellar's anthemic poem 'My Country' captured the heart of the nation when it was first published in 1908, and the love affair has continued for a hundred years. To celebrate the poem's centenary, Peter Luck presents a superb photographic homage to Dorothea and her country.
