Henry Lawson – 5

Not far from the Henry Kendall memorial in the Sydney Botanic Gardens, is a memorial to another famous bush poet, Henry Lawson. We mentioned this statue in a previous blog post.

There is another statue of Henry Lawson in a park in Gulgong, NSW. It’s a bit out of the way on the western side of the town and easy to miss.

Gulgong’s Henry Lawson Festival will be on the first weekend in June, featuring a Grand Parade, vintage displays, literary awards, poets morning tea, pavement art and food fair and wine tasting.
