Sounds of Australia 2013

Ten sound recordings with cultural, historical and aesthetic significance were added to Sounds of Australia for 2013. 

They are 'the real thing', ranging from wildlife recordings to iconic songs. This collection contains all ten inductees, and we've included multiple clips from three of them: radio's This Sporting Life, pioneering Indigenous recording artist Dougie Young and the remarkable Superb Lyrebird!

Established in 2007, Sounds of Australia is the NFSA’s selection of sound recordings which inform or reflect life in Australia. Each year, the Australian public nominates new sounds to be added with final selections determined by a panel of industry experts.
