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 summer evening 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 walking the Bibbulmun Track since the early 90's. I became a member in 2000 and a volunteer in 2001, mainly as a maintenance volunteer at Mt Clare and now at Hewett's Hill and surrounds. I was part of the Telethon Challenge fundraising walk in 2004 on the Bib and I completed my first sectional end-to-end in 2007. I love the Track and love to share it with everyone, hence I have become a volunteer guide. Enjoy your time on this amazing world class 1000km+ trail. You soon will become hooked too!
