This song was originally composed by Dorothy Stewart for the Australia Day dinner held by the Australian Society of New York in 1940.

Marjorie Lawrence performed it in a short film for the Australian Red Cross which was also shot in New York in 1944. In the film, Lawrence sings 'God Bless Australia' and then makes an appeal to Australians to donate to the Red Cross.

Later that year, Lawrence released the recording of the song on the Columbia record label.
