John Williamson...perhaps the most underated singer/songwriter of modern times released this song at least twenty years ago.
Australia is now seeing its iconical outback infested with fracking method Gas wells , mainly owned by overseas companies, they have the right to take over the land of an Australian land holder, to potentially forever compromise the Great Australian fresh water reserves by introducing cancer causing chemicals into the aquafers and bores of Aussie landowners.
The pro- maoist/stalinist Australian Labour (sic with two fingers) party has turned a blind eye to the concerns of the true blue Aussie on this issue.
Why? 180 billion dollar contract for gas with ....you guessed it China ...the masters of true blue crushing across the world..ok they learnt it from Stalin.
John Williamson wrote a song about the dying of the true blue Aussie, it has become true, including our true blue land.he wrote the song a couple of decades ago, perhaps as he saw the supposed defunct stalinists infiltrate his nation , with complete support of universuty educated career politicians?
We now in Australia have no pristine outback or place to escape to .
Over 90% of Australia is now under foreign mineral exploration rights/leases/ownership.

I have travelled extensively around Australia and I can assure you there is plenty of pristine outback, where you can drive for 2 days and not see another soul..
I think you have slightly exaggerated the extent of the mining in the outback.. And as pointed out already this practise is a huge part of your economy, in exports, jobs and industry (to name but a few)
I hope you enjoyed it because it won't be there for long. The entire country has been sold off piece by piece including all the land that already privately owned by Australian Citizens. Nobody is allowed to get in the way of this Mining Resource Boom juggernaught. We are apparently so lucky to have so many of these bloodsucking global corporations fighting for the rights to suck the life out of our country. Step right up and get your slice of the mining tenure pie!!! We're giving it all away for next to nothing, WooHoo!!!
Below is a link to the Queensland Governments interactive mining resource map. Anyone who doubts the extent of this needs to see this map. What you need to do is click on the drop down menus on the left hand side and choose all the options available. Before long you will notice that you can't see any of queensland under all the mine sites, exploration sites, sites where licenses have been sold, mining infrastructure etc etc etc
Its a disgrace.
