Mark your calendar for Byron Writers Festival 2022, set to take place this August 26 — 28 at our new site, the beautiful North Byron Parklands.

Australia’s favourite regional literary festival

For three days in August, more than 100 writers and thinkers will come together in Byron to ponder the power of stories and the written word in shaping who we are. Now in its 26th year, Byron Writers Festival has become famous for its relaxed and friendly vibe, open-air beachside location and compelling conversations spanning a mix of genres including music, art, environment, philosophy, health, politics, human rights and of course memoir and fiction.

Let’s celebrate the power of words


Now more than ever, the joy of gathering together to listen, reflect, laugh and be uplifted, feels so important. Expect to hear from your favourite authors, discover new talented writers and listen to conversations with some of our greatest thinkers on the topics that matter now.

We can’t wait to welcome you to this wonderful event!
