Going West Writers Festival - Train Journey

Going West is coordinated by the Arts Team within Waitakere City Council, with programme content designed by local resident and bookseller Murray Gray.

When Going West began nine years ago, it was the Auckland region's first writers' festival. Its focus is on the writers, thinkers and performers from New Zealand and the Pacific past and present, established and emerging. Since its inception in 1996 it has attracted over 300 writers and performers to take part.

Going West takes place in September over a two week period across various venues in Waitakere City. View information on the festival's range of events.

The major events include a literary weekend, the family day Storyfest, theatre and the original inspiration behind the festival the steam train journey.
