Join some of Australia's best writers and thought leaders
Some of the country's best writers and thought leaders will assemble in Byron Bay over 3 days for the Byron Writers Festival this August.


The Byron Writers Festival returns for a long weekend of engaging and insightful workshops, lively discussions, student writing prizes and presentations from 26-28 August 2022.

Under the auspice of this year's festival theme "Radical Hope", books buffs have the opportunity to hear from and engage with a stellar line-up of guests including:

  • Archibald-winning artist, Ben Quilty

  • Brisbane writer and journalist, Trent Dalton (Author of Love Stories, Boy Swallows Universe and All Our Shimmering Skies)

  • Gardening Australia host, Costa Georgiadis

  • Legendary Australian Actor Bryan Brown

  • Journalist Jennifer Byrne and more

    Add in a Kids Big Day Out for the little readers, Poetry Slams, Storyboard Creative Writing Program, First Nations Voices and you're starting to get an idea of the scale of this mammoth literary event.

    The Byron Writers Festival will take place in five marquees at the beautiful North Byron Parklands, 127 Tweed Valley Way (on the grounds adjacent to Elements of Byron). Is there a sweeter place for a writers' festival? There will also be satellite events along the northern rivers region.


    Visitors can purchase 1-day tickets for $110.00 to $135.00 to secure a 3-day pass from $255 - $299.00. So don't miss out. Oh, and there are also volunteering opportunities for those who would like to help out.

    Byron Bay is a beachside town located in the far-northeastern corner of the state of New South Wales, Australia in Bundjalung Country. It is located 772 kilometres (480 mi) north of Sydney and 165 kilometres (103 mi) south of Brisbane.
