Banjo Paterson

Banjo Paterson was a poet, writer and horseman, whose work focused on the outback and rural areas of Australia.

Did you know?

  • Paterson's famous poem, 'Waltzing Matilda', was set to music and became one of Australia's most popular songs
  • In 1890 he wrote 'The Man from Snowy River', a poem that captured the nations heart.
  • His image appears on the Australian $10 note

That is the greatest compliment a writer can have, to know that he has written a thing so truly that people not only believe that it happened but that it happened to themselves
