  • Tim Sheed Bush Poet


G'Day and Welcome to my Website.  My name is Tim Sheed and I am an Australian Bush Poet, Performer, MC, Enrichment Speaker on Cruiseships, been an Onboard Performer on The Ghan and even had a role in the recent movie "The Dressmaker".


I have worked most of my life as a Stockman, Stationhand and Farming Manager.


Last year I realised a dream to bring a Bush Festival to the Picturesque Seaside town of Portarlington where I now live.  As they say "You Can Take the Boy Out of the Bush, but you can't take the Bush Out of the Boy".


There was three days of fair dinkum Australian Stories, Music, Yarns and Classic Aussie Poetry to Promote and Preserve Australian Folklore with a special performance of "The Man From Ironbark" from Geoffrey Graham, Bush Poet Breakfasts, Art Show, Dreamtime Storytelling, Bush Music and Poetry and Songwriting Workshops.
