The hugely popular Bush Poets Breakfasts will run for 3 mornings:

  • Saturday 28 September

From 7.00am to 8.30am – Breakfast will be served

8.45am approx.  (when the cow bell rings!!) – Bush Poet’s Show starts

At 7.00am, a hearty barbecue breakfast will be prepared by our friendly volunteer team immediately prior to the show. Enjoy some entertaining music over breakfast. Barbeque breakfasts include bacon, eggs, sausages, baked beans, toast and tea/coffee. For catering purposes, it will be helpful if you pre-purchase your Bush Poet’s Breakfast ticket.

WRITE A POEM, RECITE IT AND WIN A PRIZE! On the final breakfast on the Saturday morning (23 September), audience members are invited to the stage to read or recite their original poem (the only rule is the poem must last no longer than 60 seconds…if it does Ray will GONG you) . It is a light-hearted opportunity for audience and guests to recite and win an Outback Festival Souvenir Pack, so make us laugh! Enter on the morning!  If you would like more information on how you can participate with your very special poem, please email our coordinator.
