Bush Poetry Dinner Cruise

Enjoy Bush Poetry Whilst Dining on the Swan

Imagine cruising longside the magnificent City of Perth, enjoying some fine Western Australian wines and a sumptuous meal with live entertainment in the form of bush poetry.

Bush Poet Rob Gunn will spin some yarns and recite some often hilarious poems, Mrs Bucket, Blue, The Grave Situation & the tongue twister Today To Morrow among others.

"The overall charm of bush poetry is the passion in which it is delivered as a well as spinning yarns full of electric details and some incredibly colourful imagery. From the setting to the content the Crystal Swan brings the traditional bush poetry into bristling heart of the modern age.

This provides a wonderful insight into an enduring art form, one that is rarely seen in the inner city."

  • Thanks heaps for all your help with the year 11 river cruise! The event went very well and all the students thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Thanks for being EXTREMELY accommodating with all the requests coming through and providing a night of memories for the students. You guys make a great team, and provide exceptional service before and during the event, which makes it even more memorable on our behalf as you made it easy for planning purposes at our end.

  • Hi Patsy,

    Ensure all the Staff and Peter receives my sincere thanks. We have been discussing and think it’s the best Christmas Party we have had in 10 years, and we know how to party!

    Staff were great and gave it a nice relaxing feeling. Everyone had a blast.

  • I held a corporate dinner event on the Crystal Swan in late Oct 2017 and can say the event far exceeded our expectations. From the planning stages, through to set-up and finally service/catering at the event - we were impressed! The staff and crew are wonderful, the food is not your typical "boat" food (so don't be afraid!) and the boat itself is really quite unique and allows fantastic views to the city and surrounds. I would book with Crystal Swan again and recommend them as a venue option no questions asked. Thanks again Patty, Tam, Peter, Skipper & crew!
