Where did it all begin?
Michael began writing poetry the night Steve Irwin passed away. In seven years Michael has written more than 3,000 rhymes - committing many to memory. To see Michael performing his tribute to Steve Irwin and other of his poems please visit his website Michael The Living Poet.

What is The Great Australian Couch Tour?

"This giant size, old, discarded red couch has become the huge symbol of my Life Participation Program - Get Off Ya Couch," said Michael.

"By sitting on the couch, getting to hear storytime and have your photos taken, your donation helps provide the opportunity for me to get it to the next town to spread the wholesome, non-religious, non-political message to Australians to Get off Ya Couch... and join a club...become a volunteer, donate to a charity, play a sport, walk the dog, fly a kite or tell the kids a story. No matter how slow you go, you will still be lapping everyone on the couch."
