Byron Writers Festival is Australia’s favourite regional meeting place of storytelling and ideas. As one of the country’s great creative hubs, they curate and develop programs that create shared moments of human connection for thousands of people.

At this year’s Byron Writers Festival, titled  Wild Imagination, you are invited to step away from the everyday, immerse yourself in a world of ideas and stories, and let your imagination run wild!

The new festival site is located at Bangalow Showground, Market Street, Bangalow (approx. 15min drive from Byron Bay) with the theme designed around five themed venues.

Deep Dives: Immerse yourself in compelling one-on-one conversations
Ideas Salon: Engage with brilliant ideas and contemporary issues
Imaginarium: Awaken your imagination with wild creativity and future thinking
Mind Spa: Nourish your soul and revive your mind
Play Zone: Revel in joyful experiences for young and old
