Banjo Paterson

Australian Poetry Festival

 

Orange and its surrounding region celebrate the Banjo Paterson   Australian Poetry Festival in February every year. Andrew Barton (Banjo)   Paterson was born at ‘Narrambla’ Orange on 17 February 1864. Banjo is an   Australian legend. He lived in Yeoval until he was about seven. This festival   highlights not only Banjo Paterson but is an opportunity to celebrate all   Australian Poetry and Poets in general.

The 2018 Banjo Paterson Australian Poetry Festival program is a   ‘whole community’ Festival. We aim to deliver a quality program that will be   of great interest to visitors and showcase the diversity our region has to offer
