Ubud Writers Festival and Gardens of Bali with Robin de Crespigny - 22-30 October 2017

For Friends and their guests

Join acclaimed Australian writer and film-maker Robin de Crespigny for the 2017 Ubud Writers & Readers Festival in Bali, and explore also some of the wonderful temples and gardens of this island paradise.

"Lush tranquility, inspirational author talks and gripping tales over breakfast, magical banquets under fairy lights, art exhibitions, markets and fabulous food, hypnotic gamelan drums, dinner with my hero Sebastian Faulks and falling in love with a calico cat while having a full body massage for $6, is my memory of Ubud Writers’ Festival. Join me this year on a Renaissance/NSW State Library tour I am leading".... Robin de Crespigny


Held annually in Bali’s artistic and cultural heartland, the Ubud Writers Festival has become Southeast Asia’s largest and most renowned cultural and literary event. This engaging four-day event brings together Indonesian and international writers on a world stage for conversation and connection across cultural divides.

Of course no visit to Bali would be complete without also exploring the island’s many beautiful temples and gardens. Discover some of the island’s most enchanting public and private gardens, including royal water gardens, traditional domestic compounds, botanic gardens and nurseries.
