Bendigo Writers' Festival
Bendigo Writers Festival
Another gold rush boomtown distinguished by its history and art, Bendigo is home to central Victoria’s annual Bendigo writers’ festival. Usually hosted in winter, the festival is moving things forward in 2021, excited for a hybrid of virtual and live events to commence in spring. With more than 150 speakers, workshops and “big-idea sessions” led by big-name authors, the festival also features food: breakfasts, brunches and gourmet galas, previously hosted by SBS Food Safari’s Maeve O’Meara.
