BMC moved from 189 to 52 Clarence St in April 1969.


2.  Briefly the aims of the Bush Music Club are to collect and popularise Australia's folk songs and to encourage the composition of a new kind of song - one that is traditional in style but contemporary in theme. We are no longer a nation of drovers, and bullockies - the majority of our people are engaged in industry; so from them we can hope to expect industrial ballads ... and from the man on the land songs of his modern environment.

3.  Some Activities - Singabout magazine, Workshop nights, Singabout nights, Concert Group

4.  BMC has had a GPO Box since 1957.
