We gratefully appreciate the support of:
The WA Bush Poets and Yarnspinners welcome you to our website.  We wish to share the passion that delights, inspires, entertains and makes us feel.  It lets us touch that part of our being that day to day life cannot.

The art of bush poetry and yarn spinning is all about entertaining. It is about telling a story and delivering the lines with just the right amount of humour, passion or feeling and sometimes, even with a touch of the theatrical to add to the spectacle - but mostly, it is just about getting up and having a go.


Our Muster is on the 1st Friday of each month, 7.00  -  9.30pm
at
The Auditorium
Bentley Park Retirement Village
26 Plantation Drive,  Bentley  6102
