    Australians all let us rejoice,
    For we are young and free;
    We've golden soil and wealth for toil,
    Our home is girt by sea;
    Our land abounds in Nature's gifts
    Of beauty rich and rare;
    In history's page, let every stage
    Advance Australia fair!
    In joyful strains then let us sing,
    "Advance Australia fair!"

    Would any of the Aussie's be of assistance to explain to those of us less fortunate -- what is "a vegemite gelato"?

    Vegemite flavoured Icecream .... would be a bit of a challenge i think! - hope they don't go making it part of the citizenship test ...
