John Gilfoyle's unique brand of bush humour ranges from funny to hilarious, from a chuckle to a belly laugh! Click on any of the titles above for a sample.
John won't be writing any more, but the legacy of his work is too rich to lose, therefore I intend to continue to update the website and make the books available to all those who enjoy a good read.
The first five books remain in print and will be reprinted as dictated by demand. John's last book "You’d Better Bloody Believe It!" is now out of stock.
To buy, simply click "Orders" and pay by direct credit or cheque. Once you have placed your order I'll reply with bank details or address to allow you to make the payment.

John Gilfoyle started out in 1960 as a jackaroo then worked as a Stock and Station Agent with Elders in places such as Cannon Hill, Charleville, Hughenden, Richmond, Quilpie, Townsville, Brisbane and Roma.
In later years he was a cattle assessor, property auctioneer and market reporter for Roma Saleyards till 2008 when he and his wife, Lurelle, retired to Brisbane.
In 2005, he started writing about his experiences in his first five books – true stories about real people – and all with a touch of bush humour!
In 2011, in collaboration with larrikin mate John "Robbo" Robbins, the two Johns published the sixth book in the series, "You'd Better Bloody Believe It!" and this one was done for charity.
By Christmas 2012, $29,000.00 had been sent to Br. Paul Murphy, to support the work of the Marist Brothers for street kids in Manilla.
