Thirty years of literature were celebrated at Storyfest this week.

The event saw a remarkable turn out of approximately 13,000 students from over 70 schools flock to Somerset from across the Gold Coast and as far as west as Longreach, South to Warialda and North to Kingaroy!

Storyfest Patron, Jacqueline Harvey and Tristan Bancks were just two of the many notable authors who delivered presentations and held workshops over the three days.

Bluey and Bingo added to the festivities and helped draw a large crowd to the Parents' and Friends’ Prologue Party following Day 1’s action.

The festival’s longevity was recognised earlier in the term with organisers welcoming returning founders to Somerset.

Well done to the Storyfest organisers and their teams of student and community volunteers.
