Tributes to Australia's National Poet...

(Read all quotes)

Adam Lindsay Gordon....a shining soul

Adam Lindsay Gordon (1833-70), Australia's acclaimed national poet was many things in his time.  A mounted trooper, champion jockey, horse breaker and Member of Parliament.  He was the first to capture Australia and her people in the words of poetry, paving the way for Banjo Paterson, Henry Lawson and William Ogilvie to create poetry that was uniquely Australian.  In his travels, he lived in South Australia, Victoria and Western Australia - no mean feat at a time when travel was on horseback or by sailing ship, and his words spread by word of mouth across the nation.  Read more about Gordon's life here...
