"Florence Austral, the greatest dramatic soprano produced by Australia and one of the finest voices of her type heard this century....If around today in her prime, there is no doubt she would be hailed as a 'megastar', given the fact that properly schooled dramatic voices are now almost as scarce as castrati."

- S.J.J. Gibbes, GRAMOPHONE, May, 1994
