“Let’s talk sport!”

Former Wallaby turned best-selling author, Peter FitzSimons is Australia’s biggest selling non-fiction author, with more than 20 published books.

As if that’s not enough, he’s also a highly successful broadcaster and journalist, speaks four languages and can talk for Australia, having recently completed a marathon, world record breaking 24 hour interview with ABC’s Richard Glover.

Described by Andrew Denton as “Australia’s finest sporting journalist”, Peter has a wealth of sporting knowledge and has interviewed some of the world’s very best sportsmen, from Diego Maradona to Karl Lewis. He’s also authored the biographies of some of Australia’s finest sportsmen, from Darcy to Eales, Farr-Jones and Steve Waugh.

Come and meet Peter over a beer and hear what he has to say about the world of sport and some of the characters he’s met, played with and against and, last but not least, written about.
