Guest Bush Poet Wally Finch

If you feel like a good laugh and a hearty breakfast; on Sunday the 20th of October, the Highfields Pioneer Village is hosting the Bush Poets Breakfast from 7:30am to 9:30am showcasing bush humour by renowned poet Wally Finch.

Wally Finch is a quick-witted comedic force, and one of Australia’s most renowned bush poets, with many accolades to his name.

‘The Bear’ recounts parts of Australian outback history schools would never dare teach, with comedic-zest and great enthusiasm – drawing his inspiration from Australian folklore, heritage and multiculturalist traits.

Hailing from Morayfield, this Australian bush poet extraordinaire is famous for taking home 48 awards early-on in his career and for winning 11 out of 12 poetry competitions!

The $20 ticket allows entry to the bush poetry, the bush poetry writing workshop if you choose, a fully cooked breakfast and the day at the Highfields Pioneer Village
