Event description


International Poetry Writing Competition

The Ipswich Poetry Feast is an exciting initiative of Ipswich City Council, supported and driven by the local community. The Poetry Feast has flourished since it was introduced in 2002 with the aim of establishing a respected and prestigious national poetry competition to:

• Encourage young and aspiring poets

• Raise community awareness of the creativity and skills in poetry writing

• Promote and showcase Ipswich as a vibrant, culturally rich region


In the latter part of the 19th century two young children, Bridget and Mary Broderick, drowned at a waterhole that lies in the township of Walloon. This tragic event was the subject of a poem penned by Henry Lawson in the 1890’s titled The Babies of Walloon. The impetus for the Ipswich Poetry Feast came from this tragedy and poem.
