10 - 12 August 2018
This year's program kicks off on Thursday 9 August at beautiful Fortuna Villa, with a "Time Travel" dinner featuring historian Tom Griffiths.
And we finish by Burning Bridges with the brilliantly funny Kitty Flanagan, in the Capital Theatre on Sunday 12 August.
In between - good country, good life, writing wrongs, a cooking demonstration with 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.
We celebrate greats such as Henry Reynolds, Helen Caldicott and Alex Miller, and we welcome newcomers such as Susi Fox, Drew Rooke and Jay Carmichael.
Tickets for all events including Festival passes go on sale June 22.
