Outback Stories (COSHA)

Date & Time

August 12, 2023 - 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Warren Fahey AM has spent over 55 years collecting, writing about, and performing Australian folklore, which he uses as signposts of our history. His most recent project is a series of twelve films celebrating the spirit of the Outback as told through stories, songs, recitations and archival films and photographs. He will talk about some of his favourite Outback characters

The series features cranky bush cooks, shearers out on the spree, drovers leading their cattle overland, Cobb & Co coaches creaking their way across country and also the story of Sidney Kidman, Australia’s ‘cattle king’. He will talk about some of his favourite Outback characters, sing a couple of songs and screen one of the films.
