Event description
There Are No Waves in Palestine: The True Story of an Aussie in Jerusalem - the Holiest City on Earth

About this Event

Greg is a storyteller, and his tales convey unusual and humorous accounts of wild adventures in remote locations, combined with an expression of the human face of lives lived in circumstances so different to his own, where he was born in the land of plenty.

The Novocastrian civil engineer, who played a leading role in Maitland’s The Levee revitalisation project and received an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in 2018, has released his third book entitled There Are No Waves In Palestine.

A born storyteller with an attraction to adventure, Blaze was seconded to the United Nations to provide engineering consulting assistance to the relief agency for Palestinian refugees, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), building schools and hospitals in the West Bank.

There Are No Waves In Palestine, he says, is a collection of his memories of living in the holiest city on earth.
