If you have heard Jim Freeman recite his colloquial and colourful poetry before, you will know that it reflects communal attitudes and traditional Australian culture, whilst giving inspiration and at times making you laugh.

Bush poetry has been instrumental in the emergence and development of the Australian identity.

Join Jim, aka the Mad Axeman, on a 5km return walk for a relaxing afternoon with a glass of wine (byo) and the setting sun in the forest as he recites his own poetry of the Bibbulmun Track and many well known bush favourites.

Book quickly! Limited places.

Very special setting...walking on a beautiful evening...and listening to someone who has a great passion and enthusiasm for the Bibbulmun track, the bush and the poetry. A very laid back enjoyable evening...thankyou. Bev – event participant

Jim is a fantastic poet and how does he remember so much without reading his poetry from a book. Kris - event participant

A very relaxed evening. Jim has a wonderful timbre in his voice that is smooth and gentle. I love his sense of humour that puts a spark into each piece. The man from snowy river was superb. The setting was calm and peaceful with superb weather. A lovely group of people also all relaxed and friendly. Dawn – event participant.

    Hi everyone. I have been member of the Foundation since 2016, after my family and I had been walking various parts of the Track and we were considering an end-to-end walk together. I still haven’t completed my end-to-end walk but aim to do so in the future. As a keen hiker, I have walked and hiked several trails in Australia and overseas. My aim as a volunteer guide is to introduce people to the Track - making it an enjoyable, exciting and memorable experience whilst also sharing some of my experiences as a maintenance volunteer with the Bibbulmun Track Foundation. It is a great pleasure to be able to be outdoors and connect with nature and people.
