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.

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, Karen here. I have always had a love of walking in the bush, particularly looking at wildflowers, but have only in recent years discovered the Bibbulmun Track. As many have told me, it is addictive and I am now passing on my new found passion by volunteering as a guide. I haven’t walked the entire track yet but my favourite so far is around the Canning River where it amazes me how much the vegetation and soil can change in so short a time. Hope to see you out there soon!
