Sounds Like Australia thumbnail image.

A superbly crafted film that brings you the unique sounds of the Australian bush. It interweaves the songs of our rare birds - The Victorian Rifle, Lyrebird and the Emu among others, with music that celebrates the Australian landscape and its wildlife…the sounds of Australia.
