duhrections - apologies to zebrahdh but I just love that word! - bananabender, 2008-01-11: 19:41:00

Beyond the black stump is a favourite old Aussie saying. It basically means beyond the back blocks, far off in the backcountry, far from civilization. For the curious the history of the saying is in this link: http://www.abc.net.au/queensland/heritage/stories/s680695.htm - bananabender, 2008-01-11: 19:51:00

The Dog On The Tuckerbox is an Aussie icon. The statue is located at Gundagai in NSW. - bananabender, 2008-01-11: 19:57:00
