'The influence of the Scots on Australian life has been profound. From the time the first Scottish settlers and convicts arrived in Australia early governors, explorers, eminent churchmen, artists, poets and novelists, bushrangers, prospectors and farmers have all played significant roles. And consequently, a certain "Scottish quality" has woven its way into Australian life and lore.'
