Oracles of the Bush
A four-day cultural event encompassing live performance of Australian Bush poetry, music and art. The timing of the event is set to coincide with Tenterfield's brilliant autumn - resplendent in a cloak of red, orange, gold and yellow, providing the perfect backdrop for this unique Australian event.
The 2022 Oracles of the Bush program features the very talented and popular bush poets, Gary Fogarty, Ray Essery, Bill Kearns and Marion Fitzgerald, supported by Balladeer, Kylie Castle. Over four days, ticket holders are invited to attend the Major Concert (where all poets come together), Children’s Concert, Looming Legend Poetry Competition Heats & Grant Final, Junior Art Competition, as well as individual performances at breakfast & lunch gatherings, a campfire dinner, open gardens, markets, museums, and local parks. Budding poets are also invited to submit their entry forms (for both written and performance), with this year’s theme being ‘Driving Passion’, providing fuel for the imagination of entrants.
