Old Man Platypus

Words by Banjo Patterson, Music by Donna Marwick-O’Brien


Banjo Paterson was an Australian bush poet, journalist and author.  He wrote many ballads and poems about Australian life, including ‘Clancy of the Overflow’, ‘The Man from Snowy River’, ‘Waltzing Matilda’, (unofficially regarded as Australia’s national anthem) and ‘Old Man Platypus’.

This fun, uplifting musical arrangement of ‘Old Man Platypus’ is designed to capture the strangeness, playfulness and ‘otherworldliness’ of the platypus.
