Literary Precinct

All you need to know about finding your way around MWF19.

This year we are delighted to be hosting Festival sessions at multiple venues within walking distance of Melbourne’s iconic State Library Victoria, including the exquisitely renovated Isabella Fraser Room and theatrette (and some of the library’s more unusual spaces); RMIT’s Storey Hall and Kaleide Theatre in the Melbourne City campus; leading literary hub and Festival favourite the Wheeler Centre – with the official Festival Bar in The Moat just below; plus the historic Queen Victoria Women’s Centre.

Just a short distance from the precinct we will utilise the newly re-opened The Capitol; the Athenaeum Theatre; Melbourne Museum and the Immigration Museum as well as favourite nightspot The Toff in Town. You’ll find MWF19 inside Arts Centre Melbourne, the National Gallery of Victoria and more.
