Welcome to Readers and Writers Down Under. This annual event is all about bringing together the people who are passionate about books with the authors who create them — it’s an event for story-lovers like you.

Held on the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, Readers and Writers Down Under (previously Indie Authors Down Under) is approaching its third successful event, scheduled for March 4 and 5, 2016. The event will again be held at the fun and fresh QT Hotel on the Gold Coast.

Our 2014 event was the first of its kind in Australia and saw a host of successful local and international authors get together for fans from all over Australia (and some from the States, too!). We can’t wait to see you in 2016.


“The organization, quality and marketing of IADU was impressive. I’m picky about the events I will attend and I was very pleased with how well this one was done. It made my trip Down Under enjoyable and successful.” — best-selling author Abbi Glines
