The Australian bush impresses new comers very much on their first run up country. It is so different from the scenery at home. The evergreen forests of Australia are so very different to the home woods (when one does at home come to a wood which is so very seldom) then the dead trees which have been run to let the grass grow have such a weird desolate appearance. The scenery here does not come up to the home scenery generally, as far as I have seen at any rate. Of course art has done more for that of the home countries than it has yet accomplished for Australia
