Tom Oliver is an actor, singer, producer and creative director from right here in Wynnum. He is one of Australia’s brightest talents with a broad portfolio that includes music, theatre, film, television, cabaret and, of course, the successful Wynnum Fringe Festival.

Tom was the Founder and Artistic Director of our first Wynnum Fringe Festival in 2020, and with his help, Wynnum became the first live Fringe Festival in the world to proceed during a global pandemic. Last year, Tom returned to run his second successful Wynnum Fringe Festival, ensuring this local event got all the backing and support it needed to just keep getting better and better. Even the Rotary Club of Wynnum and Manly got a Wynnum Fringe BBQ gig!

At The Rotary Club of Wynnum and Manly’s first meeting for 2022, Tom Oliver was awarded a Paul Harris Fellow (PHF).

Joint Rotary Presidents David Groves and Jo-Anne O’Connor explained, “we wanted to recognise Tom for his outstanding achievements in helping the wider and creative community grow and flourish and for helping to promote Wynnum to our greater Brisbane communities”.
