The Reader’s & Writer’s Festival is here with a jam packed program over three days this weekend.



As part of the festival program, the Visual Worlds Art Competition and Exhibition is displaying a collection of works including sculpture, paintings and prints in The Heart Foyer adding a unique perspective to this year’s festival.


Launching this Sunday at The Common in Gnarabup is the exhibition, Sessions with the Sea by Misty Shipway – a collection of quirky and colourful pieces that honour the ocean. Local band Short & Curly will play from 5pm to help launch the show.


And, exhibiting at the Cocoon Gallery in the Margaret River Library until 30th June are the latest works of visual artist Jara Gillick-Lewis in an intriguing exhibition titled ‘Rabbit in the Moon’.




Nature Conservation Margaret River is hosting the first of their free garden field trips on Saturday 22nd May to inspire you with practical ways to create productive, edible gardens. Places are limited so reserve your spot now.




The touching documentary Dying to Live made by local director and producer Richard Todd is screening on Friday 21st May at The Heart followed by a Q&A with donor organ recipient Peter Wood. Previous screenings of this renowned documentary have been a sellout so don’t miss this one.

Coming up on the 18th June is the Banff Mountain Film Festival – three hours of captivating footage shot in some of the most wild and remote corners of the world. Mark it in your diary now.




One last thing for the diary is the Augusta Whalesong Festival held over the June long weekend to celebrate the best the southwest has to offer. Listen out for more details coming soon.
