Save The Date – 4 – 6 Nov 2022 – It’s On!

Mountain Writers Festival is finally coming to Macedon.

After two years of delays and postponements due to ‘you know what’, we are delighted to announce that the inaugural Mountain Writers Festival will be staged right here in Wurundjeri Country, Macedon!

We are so excited to bring you a fabulous gathering of writers, thought-leaders and performers, in Australia’s first environmental writers’ festival.

Want to hear from an Australian music icon, environmentalist, activist and former politician? We got him.

A poet, researcher, descendent of the Bundjalung Nation, oh, and Stellar Prize winner! Of course, she’ll be here.

A multi-New York Times and Amazon best-selling author, podcaster, thought leader, minimalist, philanthropist and climate advisor? She’ll be with us.

How about an adored Australian landscape architect and television presenter, with tips for your soil, soul and the suburbs? Yep, got him too.

And there’s more …

An internationally acclaimed scientist, explorer and conservationist, one of Australia’s leading writers on climate change? Tick.

An award-winning climate scientist who is an internationally recognised expert in Australian and Southern Hemisphere climate? You got it.

A Torres Strait Islander film producer, director, screenwriter and actor? He’s heading our way.

A country bloke from the bush who became a Barefoot Investor and now spends his time helping disadvantaged Australians? Yes!

Join us from 4-6 November 2022 as we welcome an epic lineup featuring Peter Garrett, Costa Georgiadis, Sarah Wilson, Scott Pape, Evelyn Araluen, Aaron Fa’aoso, Joelle Gergis, Tim Flannery and a host of leading names in climate change, Indigenous literature, politics, arts, entertainment, and gardening to our little village at the base of a mountain.

It’s been a long wait and we can’t thank you enough for sticking with us on this ride.

Tickets for the festival are strictly limited and will sell out! So mark your calendar, tell your mates, and stay tuned to our socials for the program announcement and the first release of tickets.

Mountain Writers Festival is a festival for all of us – readers, writers, locals, visitors, and especially those who care about the environment and want to engage with ways to think about and save it.

Tickets will go on sale very soon and you will be notified first because you have registered on our website. Tell your friends to do the same, so they won’t miss out on the chance to buy tickets. Once they’ve gone, they’ve gone!
