Australian Folklore

We’re All Australians Now explores the questions - How do you build a nation? and What makes a society work? If the goal is to live in harmony with both the land and each other, how do we continue to achieve this goal?

In the quest to find answers Gerard goes beyond our politicians and explores the role our nation’s citizens play every day and how their actions, works and deeds; nurture, inspire and keep us safe.

To help us understand how Australia became the nation we are today the show examines the role the swaggies and shearers played in days gone by.

Music, songs, role play, and heaps of fun audience participation are all used to examine the role our Farmers, Indigenous peoples, Soldiers, Sports people, Celebrities, you, your friends and neighbours play in shaping our nation now and into the future.
