- Yodling of the Tyrolese
- And if in time to come Swiss chalets or Norwegian herdmen's huts were
to enliven the wild slopes of Tasmanian mountains; of the yodling of
the Tyrolese or Bavarian mountaineers were to resound in the Australian
Alps; if Frisian farmhouses and Italian masserias were to be the eye
on the plains of the Riverine or on the Darling Downs of southern Queensland;
if here and there the spire of the Dutch church were to greet us in
the country which used to be known as New Holland -- then all this could
only enhance the beauty of the Australian landscape and enrich the culture
of the Australian people.
