Iíve found it
My Heaven on earth
It must be
It has to be
Where else can I find warm emerald waters in which to swim
Dive for coral that comes in a rainbow of colors
Or stroll through huge fields of golden sunflowers?

Itís my Heaven on earth
Itís where I can
Spend lazy afternoons soaking up the sun by suspended lagoons
Bushwalk through rainforests just to listen to its exotic bird songs
And soak my weary body in crystal-clear rock pools!

Itís my Heaven on earth
It has breathtaking panoramic views from majestic multicolored cliffs
And sensational sunsets
That spread out for miles on beaches with white silica sand.

Itís my Heaven on earth
Itís where I can horse back ride on golden sands
Spot koalas, and kangaroos with a joey or two
Then sail next to humpback whales with their calves all on the same day.

Itís my Heaven on earth
It will have to do
For itís not yet my time
Until then
Iíve found it
AustraliaÖ
Itís my Heaven on earth

It does sound like a little piece of Heaven. I would love to go visit sometime.

You've certainly painted a vivid picture here. Really lovely.
I was there ... until I looked out the window... sob!
