Clunes Book Town Festival 2019

The Clunes Booktown Festival returns this May with a series of renowned authors and guest speakers joining the historic country town in north-west Victoria for a festival of the book filled with ideas and arts.

The popular two-day event on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 May will feature a series of panel discussions and Q&A style talks with leading Australian authors, celebrating the love of books as well as shining a light on the creative township of Clunes.

The Festival features Australia's largest book shop, with the whole of the main street given over to bookstores, with festival-goers able to browse rare and collectible books, go inside heritage buildings, listen to live music while sampling local food and wine, watch street performers, visit exhibitions, and immerse themselves in stories.

Located approximately 90 minutes from Melbourne by car, the small country town of Clunes is a member of the International Organisation of Booktowns, the only one in Australia. A Booktown is a small, regional, community-focused town with a concentration of booksellers - mainly secondhand or antiquarian bookshops.

Each year Clunes Booktown Festival attracts over 15,000 people across the two day event to the historical town, tempting book lovers with its sensational line-up of speakers and enticing weekend explorers with its culinary delights and surprises.
