The recent days of bad weather in Byron Bay hasn’t deterred crowds at the Byron Writers Festival 2016.

Brief showers are alternating with lots of sunshine, and while people are rugged up against the wind, the mood is relaxed and inquisitive.

Annabel Crabb, Charlotte Wood and Tim Fisher were among the first sessions for the first day of the Festival.

And as the coffee lines round their way out the tent, festival-goers have settled in for the day with Magda Szubanski and George Megalogenis live on ABC Books and Arts, and Wendy Whiteley talking about her Secret Garden with Janet Hawley.

The Festival continues until Sunday August 7.
