Clunes is a Booktown all year round

Booktown on Sundays

Clunes Booktown Festival

Creative Clunes Events

5 September 2019

We are very excited that Andrew McDonald of ‘Real Pigeons’ fame is coming to our Children’s Booktown On Sunday this month  - 15th September from 2-4pm.

The event is FREE and we have a lovely afternoon planned, which includes face painting, craft activities and a book reading from the author himself, who will be available for book signing. Readings Kids will be supporting the event and they will have books available for sale there. Children who are already mad Pigeon fans with their own collection are very welcome to bring their books for Andrew to sign. And who knows, there might even be some crime fighting pigeons there!

Welcome to Clunes

Each year, an army of local volunteers and a small team of staff, host the annual Clunes Booktown Festival, which attracts 15,000 people to enjoy the most amazing whole town bookshop in the world. Think author talks, workshops, live entertainment, a kids village, and good food.

Clunes is a Booktown all year round and offers a FREE series of writer talks on the third Sunday of the month  – known as Booktown on Sunday. The charming Goldfields village of Clunes is internationally recognised as a Booktown. It is a hub of ideas and the arts… along with a disproportionately high number of bookshops.
