Spring Fling

Spring Fling celebrates the transformative power of storytelling and conversation with a short series of big ideas to reinvigorate our minds, renew our perceptions and let our imaginations flourish. 



Over 10 days, the Wheeler Centre presents a delectable picnic spread of 20+ events with over 60 leading thinkers, writers and creators from Australia and abroad.



The Wheeler Centre is incredibly thankful for the generous support of its patrons Maureen Wheeler AO and Tony Wheeler AO; series partners The Moat and Readings; and event partners the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Blak & Bright, Future Women, Griffith Review, Hachette Australia, Mountain Writers Festival, RMIT Culture and Writers Victoria. With thanks to accommodation partner The Sofitel and beverage partner Furneaux Distillery.

Spring Fling is supported by the Melbourne City Revitalisation Fund, a Victorian Government and City of Melbourne partnership.
