G'day! May I introduce myself? I am Ted Egan, an old bushy who lives in Alice Springs in the Centre of Australia. Join me for an hour of music and yarns from the bush. One show only... Book fast!

Ted Egan was born in Melbourne but has lived most of his life in the Northern Territory. For many years, from 1949 to 1973, he worked in outback postings as a patrol officer, reserve superintendent and teacher. He was also an outstanding sportsman.

In 1974 he commenced a new life as entertainer, writer, historian and TV presenter. He has produced thirty albums of music, mainly his own songs, covering a wide range of observation of the people of Australia. The albums are strong sellers, as he is one of the few artists able to bridge the gap between country and folk music.

Ted has written many books and travels extensively throughout Australia, entertaining and researching new material.

He was declared "Territorian of the Year" in 2000. He was listed as a "Living National Treasure" in 2002 and nominated as an Officer (AO) in the Order of Australia for 'an outstanding record of service to the Aboriginal people and an ongoing contribution to the literary heritage of Australia, through song and verse'.


Ted Egan served as Administrator (Governor) of the Northern Territory from 2003-2007. He has four children and now resides in Alice Springs with his partner Nerys Evans.
