In this 50 minute interactive performance, we look at the life and works of Australia's greatest poet, A.B 'Banjo' Patterson.

Who was this man? Why is he so important that we put his image on our 10 dollar note? The Banjo not old penned the wonderful lyrics to 'Waltzing Matilda', he also wrote many other wonderful poems. 

The show was first done over thirty years ago and is now very much a part of Australia’s theatre history and we are are proud to continue this 30 year old tradition. Great for Literature, Drama, Poetry & Australian History.

The show comprises three great stories:

Mulga Bills Bicycle
The Man From Ironbark
The Geebung Polo Club
