Forsake the chilly open road, get inside, warm up, meet friends and enjoy the entertainment with us.

What it’s all about

Getting together and enjoying entertainment. What all the writers, reciters, musos and singers performing at this event have in common is a love of slow travel, especially when it connects bikes, hikes and old rail lines.

The program comprises well-known and not so well-known poetry and story, as well as several pieces written expressly for this event. The band has a lively repertoire and will be joined by singers of (future) renown. And just because we can, we’re also telling stories about how the rail line between Maryborough and Castlemaine operated from inception in the 1860s to its closure as a passenger service in the 1980s.
