The inaugural Mountain Writers Festival will be hosted in the regional town of Macedon, Victoria (Wurundjeri Country). It will be the first Australian writers’ festival to focus exclusively on the environment – the most important topic of our times – with a forever theme of ‘Place, Story, Nature’.

An epic lineup of thought-leaders with world-changing ideas, a passion for the environment, and a desire to write a better future for us all.

Book early as tickets are strictly limited. Register now to get notified when tickets go on sale. 

Join us for some regional local hospitality, great company, author panels, in-conversation events showcasing novels with regional settings, environmental science writing, indigenous storytelling, nature writing and cli-fi.

Plus we have two exceptional special events on Friday and Saturday nights – our Festival launch and a play reading of the local story of Ash Wednesday and how the Macedon Railway Hotel sheltered 300 locals and their animals and helped save our community.
