Nimbin’s award-winning poet laureate’s entertaining performance poetry jumps from the page to the stage, from the comedic to the satiric to the deadly serious, from war and peace to shopping and love.

A Century of Australian Poetry

Nimbin’s award winning poet laureate presents a carousel of works by Paterson, Lawson and CJ Dennis through to poems by Kath Walker, Bruce Dawe, Komninos and more.
