Australian Festival of Travel Writing


Event Status

The trip of a lifetime starts here. This year’s programme features three exciting travel themes: Dynamic India, Multicultural French Travellers, and Travel on Two Wheels.

A line-up of prominent local and international writers, photographers, journalists, winemakers, comedians, performance poets, bloggers and translators will participate in panels, workshops and special events about travelling that reach beyond the words on the page and challenge us to think differently about travel and tourism in the current climate.

Lonely Planet photography exhibitions, cool cyclists, Bollywood stories, and New Caledonian slam poetry are just some of the highlights on the program. And if you want to get involved there’s a program of workshops featuring veteran photographer Richard I’Anson, Claire Scobie and UK author Rob Lilwall.

So grab your passport and get on board for a weekend of new ways to talk about travel.
