Bush Poets Breakfast

Start your morning right with the BUSH POET’S BREAKFAST

Outback Festival 2021 will include another series of hilarious mornings! Our special guest Bush Poets will have you rolling in the aisles, wiping away the odd tear, and reveling in the campfire atmosphere and mate-ship that The Outback Festival has become famous for. Start the Day with a hearty breakfast and a belly full of laughs with bush poets Marco Gilori, Muz Hartin, and Neil McArthur. Enjoy a tasty menu of bacon, sausages, eggs, tomato, hash browns, scrambled eggs, and baked beans. Friday 25th join in the Poets Brawl where audience members are invited to perform a 60-second poem of their own composition with prizes award for the winners.
