Bushy Mark Thompson Australian Bush Poetry Hotel Cunnamulla
“Bushy” will entertain you with years of his ‘swaggies’ life with bush poetry, tall tales and true ones of Australian folklore, appearing at Hotel Cunnamulla

Bushy is a man of many words and has spent 53 years of performing bush poetry across Australia and was the Peoples Choice at the Slim Dusty Music Festival. 

“I started writing when I was a little fella cause I was always surrounded by bush and that old wireless radio with a piece of copper for an antenna. We were always sitting around a campfire somewhere and the ABC country hour would play from the radio. It’s those voices and those stories that I listened to that got me into poetry and singing and that’s when I started writing about the bush.”
