Evening at the museum: Poetry and wine

Join us for this special event to hear rare and moving poems penned by Emily Coungeau, read by professional actors, as we mark the centenary of the publication of her celebrated poem Evening on Bribie Island.

Emily Coungeau was an English-Australian poet who lived on Bribie Island from 1919 - 1936. Her poems spanned more than 20 years and her most famous work, ‘Princess Mona’ (1916), formed the libretto for the first professional Australian Opera- ‘Auster!’ (1935).

Drinks and canapes will be served on the deck overlooking Pumicestone Passage. This event is strictly by rsvp only as seats are limited.
