Two Australian poetry resources

Both Lynne and Neil referred me to the just launched Australian Poetry Library. This contains tens of thousands of Australian poems by several hundred Australian poets. There is some good material there, although I spotted a few errors in the biography sections. 

Judith Wright was born at Thalgarrah Station not Thalgaroch Station, while Les Murray's home town of Nabiac is on the Mid North Coast, not Central Coast. That said, it is a valuable resource.

While on poetry resources, I also wanted to mention the international Lyrikline site. This has a number of poems by Australian poets including Les Murray and Judith Wright in both text and as read by the author.
