Banjo Paterson Australian Poetry Festival

THE BANJO PATERSON AUSTRALIAN POETRY FESTIVAL

Banjo Paterson’s Waltzing Matilda is known worldwide; many Australians can recite a string of his poems, and his work has been converted to song and theatre. What better way to celebrate this great Australian’s life and work than through a Festival in the district in which he was born.

An annual event held in February to celebrate Banjo’s birthday near Orange in 1864

BANJO PATERSON COTTAGE ORANGE
Orange Botanic Gardens

A celebration of Banjo Paterson birthplace.

This cute little cottage could have been where Banjo Paterson was born. It is not known for sure if it is, however, the building does come from the farm where he was born and even it is not his birthplace it would have been in a cottage just like Emmaville.

Emmaville Cottage has estimated to date from the 1850s and the four-room design is typical of early Australian rural architecture. It was located on the property of ‘Narrambla’, a noteworthy landholding of the Orange district in the l830s and is significant to Australian literature and history as the birthplace of Andrew ‘Banjo’ Paterson who was born in February 1864.

ln 2013 an extensive restoration process was undertaken by the Orange Rotary Club, the Community and Orange City Council. The cottage, missing its lean-to and outbuildings was relocated to the Orange Botanic Gardens precinct as part of the restoration.

Emmaville Cottage
Yellow Box Way, Orange Botanic Gardens Precinct
Open Weekdays 9am – 3.30pm and weekends weather permitting
Free Entry
Emmaville Cottage has approximately 4 steps with access on a gravel surface.
