Banjo Paterson Australian Poetry Festival 16-26 February 2017

ABOUT BANJO PATERSON AUSTRALIAN POETRY FESTIVAL

Orange and its surrounding region celebrate the Banjo Paterson Australian Poetry Festival in February every year. Andrew Barton (Banjo) Paterson was born at ‘Narrambla’ Orange on 17 February 1864. Banjo is an Australian legend. He lived in Yeoval until he was about 7. This festival highlights not only Banjo Paterson but is an opportunity to celebrate all Australian Poetry and Poets in general.

The 2017 Banjo Paterson Australian Poetry Festival program is a ‘whole community’ Festival.  We want to deliver a quality program that will interest visitors to come to Orange and showcase the diversity our region has to offer.
We encourage you to get creative and try something new in your business that could promote your unique selling points and possibly offer a new element to your business.

Stories of Orange, NSW

Rex D’Aquino from D’Aquino Group of Companies

With a start in a tin shed in 1946, the founder of D’Aquino Bros Pty Ltd, Carmelo D’Aquino, produced six barrels of wine and started the first winemaking family in the Orange district. His grandson Rex is now the third generation to run the D’Aquino wine business – a vast commercial operation which has expanded considerably since the tin shed days and incorporates the Highland Heritage Estate vineyard as well as a distillery, wholesale and contract bottling and retail outlets throughout country NSW.

James Kendell from Small Acres Cyder
