Bob Magor


From a lifetime spent on rural pursuits ranging from shearer, dairy farmer and sheep and cattle breeder, the impoverished farmer from Myponga, Bob Magor, has gathered a wealth of stories and experiences that he puts into his bush verse. Because everything he writes is true-ish, his audiences find it easy to relate to the Aussie humour of his everyday situations. Bob has won numerous awards around Australia including four Bush Laureate awards at Tamworth and on three occasions and the coveted Bronze Swagman award at Winton in Queensland for written verse.Bob runs his farm these days by organized neglect and, never guilty of allowing the absolute truth get in the way of a good story, he continues to be a crowd pleaser as he travels Australia gathering more strange tales to put into verse.
