AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This is an Australian version of a traditonal nursery song, in which the red and white 'bus' resembles a well-known travel icon of Australia, the Kombi van. The bus, driven by a wombat and with passengers that include a kangaroo, an emu and assorted lizards embarks on a journey that criss-crosses Australia, from Queensland to Western Australia, back to the Blue Mountains, up to Darwin and then back down to Sydney.
