If nothing beats a good book, then you shouldn't be doing anything other than heading to Clunes for the Back to Booktown festival next weekend.
Every year at the end of May the little village of Clunes in Victoria is transformed into a European-style book town. Flip, riffle, ogle, admire, browse or buy the rare, precious and second hand books from 60-something sellers and traders. In between fossicking through thousands of tomes and striking literary gold, you can catch talks and workshops by writers, poets and publishers. Best make a weekend of it.
