Don Watson: The Bush

When

Don Watson grew up on a farm in East Gippsland – he’s part of the bush. But what is it? The untouched wilderness, or the land worked by farmers, loggers and cattlemen? The past of Henry Lawson or the present of agribusiness and fracking?

Don Watson, award-winning author of American Journeys and former speechwriter for Paul Keating, takes us on a journey through our own national landscape and character, presenting the bush in all its complexity and contradiction.

BYO lunch.
