About John Taylor

john taylor poet downunder

This site boasts the concerned rants and ramblings of an outback Aussie character befuddled by our “economic rationalised, daylight-saved and quality assured” Australia. Is all this really happening? Have we all lost sight of the big picture?

Truckie, Scrounger and Poet Downunder – John Taylor has ranged the outback of Western Australia for more years than he can care to remember. Living and working under the harsh but strangely beautiful conditions of the Australian bush, JT (as he is known to his closest friends and readers of this esteemed blog) appreciates the spirit of those hardy souls that have survived the modern challenge.

Overcoming hardship is the quintessential hallmark of our Australian character. Will the truthiness of Australia survive the free-trade onslaught?

John knows it will.
