Back in October 2010, Mum and I went off to Broken Hill for a holiday. By happy coincidence, we arrived on the right week, and stayed in the right hostel, to bump into a whole bunch of poets all there for a poetry event. And I’ve just found out they’re doing it again! So for Australia Day next year we’ll be taking the train up again for another wonderful few days of poetry, drinking, talking, and wondering around art galleries. I can’t wait! If you’ve an interest in poetry yourself and a few days free, why not join us? Broken Hill is a fantastic experience. (and if you’re on a pension, the train trip is almost free with your vouchers)
As you can see, I loved the massive stone sculptures. The countryside is harsh and wild and stirring.
There’s surprising beauty:
And interesting galleries to visit:
Or if your tastes run in a different direction: a Mad Max exhibit:
and at The Tourist Lodge this January, there will be poets by the pool.
