In 1989 Mick Dark gifted the former family home of writers and social activists Eleanor Dark and Dr Eric Dark to the Australian public, and to future Australian writers. In the 25 years since this wonderful gesture, Varuna has hosted residencies and programs for hundreds of emerging and established writers, fostering the publication of dozens of books and launching promising new careers. You are invited to tour the house and gardens and hear the recollections of those who have helped create this literary jewel in Katoomba.

Presented with Varuna, the National Writers House.
