Welcome to the web pages for the Central Goldfields Bush
Poets (Verse & Song) Inc.
We are a group of people devoted to the promotion of
traditional Australian Bush Poetry and Bush Music. We believe it is
important to keep the Australian culture and heritage alive and well by
remembering our past and focusing on our future.
There have been some great bush poets in our history such
as "Banjo" Paterson, Henry Lawson, C.J. Dennis, Will Ogilvie and Adam
Lindsay Gordon to name a few. The traditional rhyming verse style
provides us with a model for writers today to emulate the great works of
those who have gone before us. The traditional bush poets recorded a
lot of our history and reflected on current events at the time. It is
the role of the modern bush poet to do the same today so that others in
the years ahead may have a poet's perspective on the events in our
Our group is down to earth, with a deep love of our
country and our heritage. We are always on the lookout for new members,
be they poets, musicians or simply people who want to be involved. Our
meetings and concerts revolve around an enjoyable time to be had by all,
so come along and have a look at what we get up to. For details of
meetings, click on the "Meetings" tab on the menu at left.
