Bellingen Readers and Writers Festival
The Bellingen Readers and Writers Festival is unique amongst Australian writers' festivals in that they stage events that utilise the region's rich natural environment. Imaginative special events celebrate the magnificent natural environs of the Bellinger River, Dorrigo World Heritage rainforest, and the beaches of the Coffs Coast. The program includes poetry readings while canoeing along the river, a bird watching walk through the rainforest, weaving stories by the river, even a surfing session and stories with legendary surfers. Alternatively, you can enjoy the laidback lifestyle and cafe culture while witnessing Australia's leading personalities and new writers in stimulating panel sessions. It's considered to be the best new writers' festival in Australia, and is loved by audiences.
