Eddie Betts: The Boy from Boomerang Crescent

The Wheeler Centre

Event Date: 2 August 2022
Author / Presenters: Eddie Betts, Tony Birch

Tuesday 2 August 2022, 6:30pm–7:30pm

Eddie Betts is a true giant of the AFL. With a career boasting 350-plus games, over 600 goals, multiple All-Australian nods and Goal of the Year awards, he has earned a rare league-wide popularity. Following his retirement from football last year, the man the tabloids once dubbed ‘bad boy Betts’ is enjoying his next chapter as a dedicated husband and father, a respected community leader, and an increasingly outspoken social activist.

To celebrate the release of his memoir The Boy from Boomerang Crescent, Eddie Betts joins acclaimed writer and footy tragic Tony Birch to discuss the long hard road from the Nullarbor to the MCG, the highs and lows of his AFL career, and creating opportunities for Aboriginal youth to thrive in education and sport.
