The northern rivers region is full of travellers. And some of them live here!
Travellers’ Tales Nights are a new way for the region’s gypsy tribe to get together, have something to eat, swap stories, share information and seek inspiration and advice from each other.
Think ‘Poppies’, Kuta, or maybe ‘The Pie Shop’, Kathmandu or ‘The Pudding Shop’, Istanbul…
The first Travellers’ Tales Night will feature one of Byron Bay’s most widely travelled and entertaining storytellers, Matt Towner.
Matt is the creator of two recently published books – and the titles give you a fair idea of the stories inside: Abroad, Broke & Busted and Crazy Sh*t in Asia.
Matt assures us there is more craziness on its way, and he’s happy to share it!
The first Travellers’ Tales Night will be hosted by the Williams St Kitchen & Bar in Lennox Head on Thursday 12 April at 6pm. Entry is $10 and includes finger food.
After you’ve been entertained by Matt, you’re invited to stay on, enjoy a meal – and to swap stories, and meet some fellow travellers.
The evening is sponsored by three local businesses with deep travel connections and you’re welcome (but definitely not obliged) to pitch questions to them if you want.
Richard Everist, author of numerous guidebooks for Lonely Planet, and Lucrezia Migliore, together the co-founders of Around The Sun boutique tours, will be there to share their knowledge, as will Michael Murray, who runs the Very Best of Sri Lanka Tours.
Williams St is the perfect venue for the Travellers’ Tales Night. It’s home to the Tom King Memorial Book Room, which features hundreds of travel books that were collected by the late Tom King, a distinguished Sydney travel writer. And it is Lennox Head’s new culinary star!
More Travellers’ Tales Nights are planned. Make sure you come along to help establish what is shaping up to become a new northern rivers institution. Which local traveller writers and experts would you like to hear next?
