Let's get Curious

10 - 12 August 2018


This year's packed program includes more sessions for pass-holders, and more ticket-only events, to cater for more people in more ways. 

We're talking  good country, good life, writing wrongs and there's a focus on new writing for young readers.

There's a  cooking demo and tasting with masterchef Tony Tan, crime-starter and poetry-starter workshops, a bevy of international guests including Ann Cleeves, Lemn Sissay, Sarah Sentilles, Matt Haig and the extraordinary singer songwriter from Norway via Poland, Bente Kahan.

One of our focuses this year is honouring and respecting great writers.  You'll find  Henry Reynolds, Helen Caldicott and Alex Miller on the lineup, as well as Robyn Davidson, Rodney Hall and Charlotte Wood

Tickets  are now on sale for all events including Festival passes.
