Byron Writers Festival is Australia’s largest and leading regional writers’ festival, held in August every year at its iconic beachside location within the Elements of Byron resort site.

Renowned for its sense of community and thought-provoking programming, the Festival explores the importance of literature and debate in shaping our lives.

This year, the Festival will see more than 130 writers join panels on 120-plus sessions over the 3-day event. We will welcome artists, environmentalists, philosophers, journalists and musicians to join our more traditional storytellers to explore the myriad forms that stories take.
