About

ICEHOUSE’s unofficial Australian anthem, Great Southern Land, is turning 40 years young.

In 2022, the band is heading around the country to celebrate the song that’s been the soundtrack to everything from discussions about Mabo and the impassioned theme to the Australian cricket team walking on the field, to having a plane named after it. 

Great Southern Land was first released in August 1982 as the lead single from ICEHOUSE’s multi-platinum second studio album, Primitive Man. The song debuted at #5 on the Australian Albums Chart and made its debut on triple j (2JJJ as it was known then).

Great Southern Land has been a part of almost every Australian’s summer soundtrack for the past 40 years and in 2014, it was inducted into the National Film and Sound Archive’s Sounds of Australia registry.  It’s also been remixed a number of times, most notably Bill Laswell’s The Great Southern Mix,  clocking in at almost 16 minutes, and the Byrralku Dhangudha remix from 1994 which features Indigenous musicians playing and singing the chorus in their own language. Its message is as current and relevant today as it was when it first appeared.

Across the year there will be a number of special guests from different eras of the song's 40 years to tell their stories of the land we all share with so many diverse cultures and influences. At different concerts this may include Missy Higgins, James Reyne, Kasey Chambers, Eskimo Joe, Something for Kate, Jebediah, Baby Animals, William Barton, Vanessa Amorosi, Christine Anu, Busby Marou, Emily Wurramurra and more.
