WHAT A GREAT FESTIVAL!!!
It's on again in 2017.
SAVE THE DATE!!!
20 - 22 JUNE 2017
Congratulations to the winners of Short Story Competition and the authors who were selected for publishing in the book which is available for purchase from here
A huge thank you to the authors who travelled from as far as Sydney to be with us. Some drove for many hours avoiding the unexpected floods that played havoc. For rain fall levels that fell in June this year, you have to go back to 1910.
Special mention must be made of the intrepid adventurers who came from Coonamble to Dubbo by car, Dubbo to Sydney by plane, Sydney to Brisbane by plane , Brisbane to Barcaldine unexpectedly by plane and then by bus to Longreach and finally Longreach to Winton by hire car. Congratulations! That's how important it was for them not to miss the inaugural Outback Writers' Festival.
Jeff Close and Bente Moller did a magnificent job of catering. Bente's food was fantastic and Jeff's camp ovens provided a true outback experience.
Stand by for some great photos.
