In The Mountain Woodland

The higher branches of the tall mountain ash trees in the freshening winds wave
In the mountain woodland overlooking the Town of Belgrave
And the morning air echo to the voices of the pied currawong
The dark crow sized birds tell of rain in their song.

Where the lyrebird and whipbird and kookaburra reside
The Dandenong Ranges National Park it is known Worldwide
As a place where humans with Nature live in harmony
In the home of the tree fern and mountain ash eucalypt tree

The beauty of Nature is free for all to admire
And of singing her praises how could one ever tire
And in the Dandenong Ranges on the high wooded ground
Her unrivaled beauty at all times does abound

Where the tall mountain ash trees seem to touch the low clouds of the sky
The crimson rosellas do chirp as they fly
In the home to yellow robin and sulphur crested cockatoo
And the large dark brown parrot known as the weerloo.
