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! I’ve been walking the Track since the late 90’s, and like many, started slowly along the big hill curve of learning. A warning: the Bib is addictive. To me, being in the bush is a form of meditation. The whole Track is my favourite section but I must admit to being very fond of sitting on top of Mount Cooke, watching the eagles circle the skinks, and just soaking it all in. I enjoy sharing my love of the Track with novice walkers so hope to see you out there soon.
