'Oracles of the Bush' Tenterfield Tour

A message from the Oracles of the Bush committee:
Coming into the 27th Oracles year it is with heavy hearts, we announce 2024 is the final curtain call. Everything in life has a time frame and nothing lasts forever. Some committee members have been involved for 20 plus years and are needing to step down. Unfortunately committed replacements to take over the event management are not around. Rather than have the quality of the event diminish we have decided to pull together and present one last cracker of a festival.
The “Yellow Shirts” look forward to seeing ‘the purple Shirts’ in 2024.  NB: Be quick to book with Debbie as there are limited seats available.
About the tour:

A week-end full of Entertainment, Fun and much Laughter!

Oracles of the Bush is an annual event celebrating Australian bush poetry, music and art. This event boasts among the highest prizemoney for any bush poetry competition in the country. It includes a variety of events such as Poets’ Concert featuring professional poets, poetry competition heats and final, breakfasts, lunches and the Poets’ Brawl breakfast in Jubilee Park.

Oracles is held at the start of Autumn when Tenterfield’s leaves are beginning to turn gold. It’s a great place to be at the start of a wonderful season. Our visit will see Tenterfield’s brilliant autumn foliage-providing the perfect backdrop for a truly unique Australian event. Oracles of Tenterfield Link:

“Oracles of the Bush Tenterfield is different every year. But what is the same year after year is our range of country venues and the fact that you will laugh, cry and walk away from the festival weekend with a heart that is full” – Oracles of the Bush Tenterfield Facebook page.

Check out this amazing 60-second video from 2022 Oracles of the Bush Tenterfield.

One of the AbFAb passenger highlights of attending the annual ‘Oracles of the Bush’ is listening to the Flanagan Twins: Rissie and Archie perform. We are proud to be watching them grow into amazing people, just like their beautiful and talented mum Lara.

Check out the “Oracles of the Bush’ Facebook Page for a feature story on Archie and Rissie’s fundraising challenge.
A thought to support – save your recyclable bottles (or funds from) to help with their fundraising efforts.
