"Songs of Australia" by the Star Chorale
The Star Chorale presents a musical reflection on life in modern-day Victoria - growing up in Melbourne, surviving the Black Saturday bushfires, inspiration from the inimitable Michael Leunig, an homage to the ANZACs.

"A Place by the River" by Eddie Perfect & Kate Sadler
"Out of the Ashes" by Fay White with the bushfire-affected community of Halls Gap
Ben van Tienen's "Across the Dark" suite, lyrics by Michael Leunig
"Let it go" by Suzann Frisk in the Dandenongs, lyrics by Michael Leunig
An energetic, contemporary setting of "Waltzing Matilda"
