Join us for a literary lunch and illuminating conversation with former Wallaby, acclaimed author, broadcaster and raconteur Peter FitzSimons!

Enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by Scenic Rim's Hinterland Harvest and a glass of something refreshing sourced from local wineries and breweries.

Peter Fitzsimons is a former Wallaby, a best selling author of approximately 20 books and an MC speaker in enormous demand. One of Australia's very best raconteurs, he captivates audiences within minutes then keeps them hooked and laughing right through to the end.

Highly intelligent and absolutely focused, Peter draws on his own stories as well as those of many international leaders of business, government and sport to tailor and deliver presentations that inspire and entertain.

Peter FitzSimons is a journalist with The Sydney Morning Herald and Sun-'Herald. He is also a regular TV commentator, a former radio presenter (very successfully, with Mike Carlton on Radio 2UE) and is also a former national representative rugby union player.

Peter's books include Tobruk, Kokoda, Batavia, Mawson and the Ice Men of the Heroic Age, Ned Kelly and biographies of Nancy Wake‚ Kim Beazley‚ Nick Farr-Jones‚ Les Darcy, Steve Waugh and John Eales.

Peter is Australia's biggest-selling non-fiction author of the last ten years. He was named a Member of the Order of Australia for service to literature as a biographer, sports journalist and commentator, and to the community through contributions to conservation, disability care, social welfare and sporting organisations.

He lives with his wife, Lisa Wilkinson, and their three children in Sydney.

Peter's latest book is Gallipoli, in which he has written extensively about the Battle of Hill 60. August 29 is the centenary of this battle. History comes to life with Peter FitzSimons.
