On May 17 The Byron at Byron Resort and Spa will host legendary Australian media personality George Negus who - among other things - will share his thoughts on Australia's place in a monumentally changing world.

2010 Australian MasterChef winner Adam Liaw, former Vogue and Cosmopolitan fashion editor turned restaurateur turned author Victoria Alexander and local Byron chef, food writer and restaurant reviewer, Belinda Jeffery are just a taste of the foodie line-up featuring at the Byron Bay Writers' Festival.
Festival Director Candida Baker advises that the foodie events are amongst the most popular and tickets go quickly.
