The C.J. Dennis Society

The C.J. Dennis Society

Our aim is to:

  • Promote Australian "bush" poetry by keeping C.J.Dennis' works alive; and
  • Devise ways to make sure that C.J.Dennis gets the public recognition this great Australian writer deserves.

The Society has the advantage of access to a great home base - The "Singing Gardens" at Toolangi, (1694 Healesville-Kinglake Rd, TOOLANGI, VIC, 3777) where Dennis penned many of his masterpieces.

It is ideal for functions like fundraising, or a place where bush poetry lovers can gather in friendship.

Annual Membership of the Society (which is non profit making) is $25. If you would like to join, please click on contact us.
